Review Board 3.0.6 Release Notes

Release date: April 10, 2018


  • Added a new publish_as_owner=1 argument to Review Request Draft Resource to publish on behalf of the owner instead of the logged-in user.

  • Publishing the first draft of a review request using Review Request Draft Resource now sends e-mails/notifications as the review request owner and not logged-in user.

    This was a regression in 3.0.

Bug Fixes

Review Requests

  • Publishing a review request after using rbt post --submit-as= no longer sends e-mails as the logged-in user.

    Prior to 3.0, the e-mails would be sent as the user passed to --submit-as, and this broke in 3.0. The original behavior has been restored.

  • Fixed automatically growing or shrinking the size of text fields when adding or removing lines.

  • Fixed immediately updating the “Ship It!” text on a review when revoking the Ship It.


  • Fixed a regression where relative URLs instead of absolute URLs were being used in some links in e-mails.


  • Fixed problems looking up revisions when the configured server timezone wasn’t set to UTC.


  • Fixed problems fetching files using GitLab API version 4.

    Depending on the criteria used to fetch files, the wrong API request was being issued.


  • Fixed showing the wrong dates/times when browsing Mercurial commits if the server timezone wasn’t set to UTC.

Local Sites

  • Fixed redirecting from the root of a Local Site to the user’s dashboard.

  • Fixed linking to user pages on a Local Site from the Dashboard and other datagrid pages.
