We had almost given up with the direct upgrade method and deciding to
go with an upgrade plan of ReviewBoard 1.0.6 to 1.7.6 and then
upgrading to 2.0.12. We still had to manually handle some of the
apache and django configurations, which weren't too difficult to
figure out - but it would have been easier if this information was
available in a single location.

Yesterday, I decided to take a look at the above django-evolution
errors. I was able to successfully resolve the above "Property 'null'
has changed" errors after making the following changes:

diff --git a/reviewboard/reviews/evolutions/null_repository.py

                                         blank=True, null=True)

The above diff was generated against "release-2.0.x" branch. I came up
with this change after comparing the output of "rb-site manage
/path/to/site sqlall reviews" run against 1.0.6 production server and
2.0.13 on my test server.

After making this change, I'm able to directly upgrade from
ReviewBoard 1.0.6 to 2.0.13 without any errors. Even "condensediffs"
ran just fine. During my testing on the UI, I can access older review
requests just fine - both in user as well as in admin dashboards.

Christian / David: Could you please confirm if the above patch looks
okay? Can you help me understand what specific things I should check /
test before performing this on production?
