Review Board doesn't provide such a UI today. We can't provide a consistent
experience around repository browsing.
Most users just use the command line to put code up for review. We ship a
package called RBTools, which has a handful of useful command line tools for
creating, updating and querying review requests.
RBTools has a Python API for interacting with Review Board, so if needed, you
could add integration into some existing UI.
