Many thanks for getting back to me.
I think I know why it is breaking but don't know how to fix it.
The diff looks as I would expect (with all files being something like this):
--- libs/A/Source/File.cpp (revision 143446)
+++ libs/A/Source/File.cpp (working copy)
I used the webapi to query the Review and spotted the following on the diff
resource associated with the review request:
I suspect that maybe in the old GUI (Reviewboard 1.7) it used to combine
this basedir and the file path in the diff to draw the differences.
I think that maybe we have a problem where it appends the Repo Path +
BaseDir + FilePath
Maybe there is a difference in RB2.0.x?
Our databases on legacy SW used a lot of SVN externals, so someone wrote a
script to generate a single diff file relative to the SVN_SERVER root.
It allowed us a single review which was better, but it probably set the
Basedir to be the complete http path.
Maybe it was not supposed to work that way, but we just got away with it.
Interested to see what you think and whether there is a regression or a
misuse by us that has been cleared up in RB2.0, the only problem now is we
have 100s of requests that are like this....
Hope you can help, and happy to try patches.
