thanks for the reply but something still isn't jiving with our setup. Installation information: ReviewBoard - version 1.5.1 GIT and GITWeb - version 18.104.22.168 We're using gitosis to control access to the repositories.
Your example shows an http address for the path - does that mean that ReviewBoard expects the GIT repositories to be available via http? We don't have http access to the repos so I tried setting the path to: http://path/to/gitweb?p=repo.git (the base gitweb address) That results in: A repository was not found at the specified path. Our origin URL, as shown by 'git remote show origin', is: gito...@gitserver:repo.git Putting that in the Path results in the same not found at specified path error. Maybe I should start by asking what requirements ReviewBoard has in regards to GIT installations. Does it need http access to the repositories? Does it need non-authenticated file access? Will it work when repositories are available only via SSH key authentication and GITWeb? Thanks.
