Good idea. Here is the output:

post-review -n -d
>>> svn info
>>> git rev-parse --git-dir
>>> git symbolic-ref -q HEAD
>>> git svn info
>>> repository info: Path: svn+ssh://, Base path:
/trunk/KDE/kdebase, Supports changesets: False
>>> git config --get reviewboard.url
>>> svn propget reviewboard:url svn+ssh://

If I manually run the propget this way it works:

svn propget reviewboard:url svn+ssh://

My guess is that it works for you as long as your svn username is the
same as your local one, which is not the case here.

Not sure I would like it to publish without me looking at what it
created, but I can see how this can be handy in some situations.

Yes, I should look into this. Unfortunately my time is quite limited...
