4162: rbt post does not follow tracking branches transitively


What version are you running?

paul@celebrimbor:~$ rbt -v
RBTools 0.6.3

What steps will reproduce the problem?

paul@celebrimbor:~/git/dCache (2.14)$ git checkout -b master upstream/master
Branch master set up to track remote branch master from upstream.
Switched to a new branch 'master'

paul@celebrimbor:~/git/dCache (master)$ git checkout --track -b development/new-feature master
Branch development/new-feature set up to track local branch master.
Switched to a new branch 'development/new-feature'
paul@celebrimbor:~/git/dCache (development/new-feature)$ 

[make changes to the checkout files]

paul@celebrimbor:~/git/dCache (development/new-feature)$ git commit -a
[development/new-feature 566d065] Test commit
 1 file changed, 1 deletion(-)

paul@celebrimbor:~/git/dCache (development/new-feature)$ rbt post -g -o
ERROR: Error creating review request: The repository path specified is not in the list of known repositories. (HTTP 400, API Error 206)

Just to confirm that the problem is the lack of transitive tracking, I can put the tracking in explicitly with the --tracking-branch option:

paul@celebrimbor:~/git/dCache (development/new-feature)$ rbt post -g -o --tracking-branch=upstream/master
Review request #9034 posted.

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?

I expect that rbt post succeeds without requiring the --tracking-branch.

For comparison, if branch development/new-feature is created directly from upstream/master branch (i.e., git checkout --track -b development/new-feature upstream/master) then rbt post command will succeed without the --tracking-branch option.

What operating system are you using?

paul@celebrimbor:~$ lsb_release -a
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description:    Debian GNU/Linux 8.3 (jessie)
Release:        8.3
Codename:       jessie

Attach the debug out from the command.
