Hi guys, I made some progress with regards to my situation.
I am using ReviewBoard 1.5.1;
According to an answer I got from StackOverflow, I modified the
\reviewboard\scmtools\git.py file, and replaced the following lines:
self.git_dir = url_parts
self.git_dir = url_parts + url_parts
I also modified my Apache configuration file to ensure that Apache has
access to my repository folder.
Now, there remains one problem. When I try to add my repository with
the following format: file://D:/Repositoires/LocalClones/sdu-test , I
get the following error:
<django.utils.functional.__proxy__ object at 0x049AA7B0>
Nothing in my Apache log file seems to indicate a problem...
Anyone has any clue as to why I'm getting this error?
