I've tried to understand how this mapping is perfomed and came up with the
following description/example. Can anyone confirm that I got it right?
ReviewBoard diff comments are mapped to the virtual diff table which is
shown in the web interface, not to a location in the old or new file.
Take for instance the following side-by-side comparison:
1: This is the first line This is the first line
2: This is the second line
3: This is the third line
4: This is the fourth line
4: This is the fifth line This is the fifth line ( adjusted )
The line mappings are the following:
