5010: import-db fails: "The reference from `FileDiff.commit` to `DiffCommit` is required, but is empty! Please report this."


What version are you running?

Review Board/rb-site 6.0
ReviewBoardPowerPack 5.2.2
From the Review Board 6.0 docker image

What steps will reproduce the problem?

  1. rb-site manage <site> export-db
    This is a rather older site that has been migrated up version-by-version
  2. rb-site manage <site> import-db

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

Expected would be a completed import. Instead, a partial import and the error described in command output below.

What operating system are you using?

Linux -- Review Board 6.0 docker image

Attach the debug out from the command.

$ rbt manage --debug /site import-db -- -b /tmp/reviewboard-export/bundle/ -k /tmp/reviewboard-export/key --user-strategy=merge --review-group-strategy=rename --repository-strategy=merge

Please provide any additional information below.

This data was originally hosted on a 1-series reviewboard and migrated through 2 eventualy up to 6.

The import-db fails on 6.0 and also the 5.0.x versions I have tried.

The ultimate goal is to merge this reviewboard data into another instance.
