I assumed before that it would not work with git-svn, only plain svn or
git repositories, so I just gave it a try.

I wanted to only output a diff so I ran it like this:

post-review -n --username <my-svn-username>

It failed to connect to svn. It asked for a password which is not
necessary, since authentication is done via ssh keys. It is highly
possible I am not using the tool correctly. It looks handy, but I think
reviewboarddiff would still be useful as a simpler alternative, with
less constraints than post-review.
