What version are you running? 1.5.5 What's the URL of the page containing the problem? New Review Request Page What steps will reproduce the problem? 1. Generate a diff file using "cvs diff -uN >output.txt" over a code which has new files 2. Try to submit the generated output.txt through the "New Review Request" page 3. The result is "Unable to parse diff revision header '1 Jan 1970 00:00:00 -0000'" The problem is because the diff file contains the following lines for new file: " --- nul: 1 Jan 1970 00:00:00 -0000 +++ MyFolder/MyFile.cs 17 Sep 2011 16:02:38 -0000 " and " 1 Jan 1970 00:00:00 -0000 " cannot be parsed. I modified cvs.py to return PRE_CREATION in this scenario when no revision is provided and it works like a charm. What is the expected output? What do you see instead? The diff should be successfully uploaded. What operating system are you using? What browser? Windows 7 (64 bit), Windows XP (64 bit), Windows Server 2008 R2 (64 bit); Browsers: Firefox, Chrome Please provide any additional information below.
Can you create a patch and submit it to http://reviews.reviewboard.org/ ?

Sorry for the late response. Is the issue still valid? I have a lot of urgent work on other stuff but once I am back to my workstation in the office and I have some free time I can submit the fix we used.
We'd be happy to take any patches that fix this if you have one :)
Fixed in master (c89f161). Thanks!

Because of various changes, I have not used reviewboard for around 2 years. The patch I was using was on one old HDD, from which I got part of the information recently... I see this is fixed now, but if it happens to be of interest at some pint, I am pasting a couple of notes from one text file describing the patch we have applied at that time: " 3.
