Love ReviewBoard but upgrading to 1.7 was a real pain.
First I had to modify the database backend
I'm far from a power python user so it took quite a bit of time to get this
Then rb-site upgrade went through but with many red error messages that I
unfortunately couldn't copy. No clear text instructions on the new media
I got the same broken look as Joe Attardi, and the extra Location+Alias
solved the issue.
I was just following the regular update steps I've been doing for a year,
last I checked they didn't change.
As of now I'm up and running, but it took about an hour.
