Thanks! Can we list your company on our Happy Users list? :)

This has certainly been requested before, and is doable. I think we could
offer this in a future release. I'm not sure if we have a ticket filed.
Would you mind filing one?

The comments part confused me a bit, but we actually have many keyboard
shortcuts for navigating diffs. Look in our documentation (top-right of
Review Board) in the section on reviewing diffs. We list the shortcuts in
there. Eventually we plan to list those in the UI somewhere.

Another frequently requested feature, but one that we don't necessarily have
control over. This works if emails are sent directly to you, but in many
(most?) deployments, they're actually sent to mailing lists. We obviously
can't control whether you get it then. Offering options for that may mislead
