Since upgrading to 1.7.1 all new reviews have been running into this issue
I did some digging into the traceback that was generated and found the
reviewboard/scmtools/hg.py line 215, the "version" variable being passed to
parse_version is None.
This is coming from line 213 "from mercurial.__version__ import version"
When I run the line above from the command line I get back "1.9", but for
some reason it is not working from the web server.
I have not changed any set up with the web server since upgrading from
1.6.13 to 1.7.1, but this wasn't an issue before.
I have verified the rb-site was properly upgraded.
Is there something I missed somewhere? To get it to work in the mean time I
hardcoded the version number for mercurial, which seems to have mitigated
the issue (and made me feel really dirty), but I'm still not sure why it
thinks it should break itself.
