## Review Board

For very large and complicated Pull Requests we have created a Review Board instance to facilitate more in depth review and discussion at

First acquire the client, RBTools, on Ubuntu:

apt install rbtools

Then hookup your git repo to review board with:

rbt setup-repo

Using the repo `cwtch`

Finally you will be able to create commits with

rbt post --parent master

It possibly will need the arguments `--tracking-branch=cwtch/master --branch=YOUR-BRANCH -d` (-d for debug if you are having trouble)
