Hi everyone,

The post-review ClearCase client is supposed to be working both with
dynamic and snapshot views. Although, in case of snapshot views it
fails when review contains new files.

The problem is related to the diff_directories() function which
doesn't work with snapshot views.
Additionally, if one manages to create diff file with directory diff,
it does not work on Review Board side when the special case (denoted
by .@@) extended path is used [1].
I have not managed to figure out a way to list directory contents in
case of special case extended path neither in dynamic nor snapshot
view.

Therefore, why does the ClearCase client even pass the directory
changes to review? Can this get removed?
Both new and deleted files are already properly handled by Review
Board, so why include "semi-file" which contains directory listing?

Regards,
Tomasz
