Thanks Christian for the answer..
Sorry for not mentioning earlier mail, I was trying it on a test bed. The
steps which I was following is
1. Installed a fresh copy of 1.0.9 on a new server.
2. Took backup of the db from the production server and restore on the
test server of 1.0.9
3. Started the upgrade on ReviewBoard with easy_install -U ReviewBoard
which completed without error.
4. Upgraded the site with rb-site upgrade /path/to/site. It failed with
the above mentioned error.
Please let me know, any way to make this happen.
