RBTools 0.7.2 Release Notes

Release date: March 9, 2015

New Features

  • Added two new commands: rbt login and rbt logout.

    These commands make it easy to log in or out of Review Board without having to perform other operations on the server.

    rbt login will prompt the user for credentials, log in to Review Board, and store the session cookie. The credentials can optionally be provided by passing --username and --password.

    rbt logout will log out of the Review Board server, invalidating the cookie. The cookie will then be removed from the cookies file.

Bug Fixes


  • Fixed a Unicode issue when prompting for input.

    Patch by Halvor Lund.

  • The .reviewboardrc search path now uses the original behavior of checking for the file in the current directory or a parent before checking the one in the home directory.

  • Fixed file exclusion so that it’s consistent across all types of repositories. (Bug #3776)

    Previously, patterns matching the root of a repository led to inconsistent behavior across the various repositories. Now all paths begining with a path character (\ or /) are treated relative to the root of the checkout. The exception is CVS, which treats it as relative to the current directory, as that’s how it handles diff generation in general.

rbt land

  • Fixed using --edit when landing remote changes.

    Previously, this option was being ignored, requiring the commit to be amended later.

  • The change description is no longer printed to the console when using --edit.

rbt post

  • Fixed issues posting changes against Git repositories hosted on Bitbucket, Beanstalk, and Unfuddle.

    When running against Review Board 2.0.13 or older, we must go into a compatibility mode for diff validation. We recommend upgrading to 2.0.14 or higher.


  • Fixed a Unicode issue when assembling HTTP requests.

    Patch by Halvor Lund.

  • API caching is now disabled for Review Board 2.0.13 and lower.

    We found some other caching problems that were worth working around in 2.0.13 by disabling the cache. It now requires the upcoming 2.0.14 and higher.


  • Fixed handling of empty files in Subversion diffs in certain cases.

  • Fixed path concatenation to prevent a leading double slash.

    Patch by Griffin Myers.

  • Fixed trying to use --svn-show-copies-as-adds when using versions of SVN prior to 1.7.

    Patch by Griffin Myers.

  • --svn-show-copies-as-adds now respects included and excluded files. (Bug #3649)

    Patch by Griffin Myers.

  • Fixed several bugs when using --svn-show-copies-as-adds with including unwanted items.
