I'm currently evaluating Reviewboard for use by lilypond, which uses the 
gnu.org GIT server (savannah.gnu.org). Unfortunately, there are different git 
URLs for anonymous access and for developers:

The anonymous GIT URL is: 
The URL used by developers with push access is:

Now, I have a local clone of the anonymous repo on the server, and I have set 
up Reviewboard on my test server with the following repository settings:

Hosting service: Custom
Repository type: Git
Path: /home/www/reviewboard.kainhofer.com/lilypond/.git
Mirror path: git://git.sv.gnu.org/lilypond.git
Raw file URL mask: http://git.savannah.gnu.org/gitweb/?p=lilypond.git;a=blob 

I can't see any way to also specify the path of the developer git access here 
(the documentation says that the mirror url should be the origin of the local 
clone on the server)...

We need both developers with push access and documentation writers, who have 
only an anonymous clone, to work with the Reviewboard.

I have now my local clone (from the developer URL), and if I try to post a 
review, I get the error:

There was an error creating this review request.

The repository path "ssh://kainho...@git.sv.gnu.org/srv/git/lilypond" is not 
in the list of known repositories on the server.


That's not surprising, because I couldn't give the developer git URL anywhere 
in the repository settings in Reviewboard.

So, how can I set up a repository that will match both the developer git repo 
and the anonymous git mirror?
