Review Board supports posting and reviewing code on SourceForge repositories.
The following types of SourceForge repositories are supported:
To simplify posting changes to Review Board, we recommend using RBTools. This ensures that the diffs are in the correct format, and makes managing review requests much easier.
Adding the Repository¶
To configure a SourceForge repository, first proceed to add the repository and select SourceForge from the Hosting type field.
Step 1: Link Your SourceForge Account¶
You will need to link an account on SourceForge to Review Board, so that Review Board can access content from the repository. If you’ve already linked an account with sufficient access to the repository, you can use that instead.
If you’re linking for the first time, you’ll need to make sure you have your username and password handy.
Fill out the following fields:
- Account username:
The username used to log into your SourceForge account. This is not your e-mail address.
- Account password:
The password used to log into your SourceForge account.
Due to the way Review Board interacts with your repositories, your password will be stored in encrypted form in the database.
The account will be linked when the repository is saved. If there are errors authenticating the user or retrieving an access token, you will be prompted to fix them.
Step 2: Provide Repository Information¶
Next, you’ll need to fill out the following fields:
- Repository type:
The type of repository you’re adding. This can be “Bazaar”, “CVS”, “Mercurial”, or “Subversion”.
- Project name:
The identifier for your SourceForge project.
This is the name shown in the URL for your project page. It would be the
Step 3: Choose a Bug Tracker¶
If you’re using the issue tracking feature on this repository, you can simply check the Use hosting service’s bug tracker checkbox. All bug IDs will link to the appropriate issues for your repository.
If you’re using a separate bug tracker, or a separate project on SourceForge, you can leave the checkbox unchecked and choose a bug tracker from the list.
Step 4: Manage Access Control¶
You can now choose who should have access to this repository (both posting against it and viewing review requests posted against it). This is separate from SourceForge’s own access controls.
Step 5: Save the Repository¶
At this point, you should be able to save the repository. If saving succeeds, you’re done! You can start posting changes for review.
