Review Board 1.6.16 Release Notes¶
Release date: February 20, 2013

Repositories deleted through the Web API are now only archived if they have any associated review requests. Otherwise, they’re deleted, which helps prevent collisions when creating a repository, deleting it, and re-creating it.

Fixed default Apache configuration files to be explicit in enabling
Fixed fetching files with FedoraHosted. Patch by Stephen Gallagher. (Bug #2897)
