Thanks for your input, I changed p4api_version to 12.1 in setup.py and I
got rid of the error.
(12.2 didn't work because there was no directory on ftp.performce.com )
However now I ran into another error :
*[P4#run] Errors during command execution("p4 describe s1") [Error]:
'Unicode clients require a unicode enabled server'*
Do I need to ask my server administrators to enable something? or still its
a problem on my ubuntu installation of reviewboard?
