This is an oversight. A third-party patch introduced the
--svn-show-copies-as-adds in the backend, but didn't include the option in
post-review. We'll get a patch in to fix it for 0.5.5, and I've attached
that patch here if you'd like to try it out.

We're going to be improving the way that rbt post (and post-review) match
SVN repositories on the server. 0.5.5 will include this change: , which will let you pass in the
repository name through the --repository-url flag (or associated REPOSITORY
config key). For the 0.6 release, we'll be separating this out into a
--repository setting.
