Also I observed  that you are cloning the repository from instead of the Apache
repository which is this (
). Clone it from here and checkout to master since 3.0.x is considered to be a dead branch
as David mentioned. Please go through this document once (
) and follow the procedure which I mentioned in my previous mail.

Subject: Little help submitting a patch on 3.0.x branch

Hi, I'm having trouble submitting a patch for review. Sorry, I'm new to git and Review Board.

I created my working directory from this repository and branch and I made my edits:

git clone --branch 3.0.x

If I choose "cloudstack-git" at and submit a diff file (the
output of "git diff"), it reports the error "The file 'awsapi/conf/'
(r08f5603) could not be found in the repository".

I think I need to specify the Parent Diff, but I'm not sure what it's supposed to be.

I'm probably having a similar problem when I tried using "post-review":

   $ post-review --tracking-branch=upstream/3.0.x  --server
   There don't seem to be any diffs!
