I'm a little confused with the way Reviewboard works with a CVS repository.
The repository sits at /srv/cvs and there are a number of modules inside
it, one for each software my company develops; I'm planning to use
Reviewboard and automate review request creation for a couple of modules
In my test setup, Reviewboard runs in the same machine which hosts the CVS
repository, so the repository path in Reviewboard is configured as /srv/cvs.
On that same machine, I checked out a module "mod" to /home/user/src/mod,
modified a file and ran post-review in that directory (the module
"root"). The review request is created successfully, but when viewing the
diffs, the list of files shows something lilke:
src/file.properties (was mod/src/file.properties): 4 changes [ 1 2 3 4 ]
It seems Reviewboard thinks the file name changed! If I generate the diff
myself with cvs diff and prepend the module name to each path, so that
--- src/file.properties <timestamp> 1.1
+++ src/file.properties <timestamp>
--- mod/src/file.properties <timestamp> 1.1
+++ mod/src/file.properties <timestamp>
and then post the review request, the changed files list only shows the
In both diffs, the "RCS file" line is correct:
So, can I simply ignore this? Is the CVS repository configured incorrectly?
Thanks in advance for any clarification.
