This week authentication was changed to be required for our proxy server and
post-review stopped working. This seems to be caused by two factors:
1. It doesn't handle proxy authentication.
2. Proxy exceptions aren't honored so the proxy isn't skipped as it should.
I did find an older message about this topic where the poster worked around
the issue with a script that wrapped post-review and disabled/enabled the IE
proxy, but I didn't quite like that solution.
After reading some post-review and urllib source I found a new workaround.
Add the lines below to .reviewboardrc (which I found to be executable to my
os.environ["no_proxy"] = "*"
Hope that helps someone.
