It does sound like an API change, but what looks weird to me is that
the API we were using (which I _know_ was working) is not documented
anywhere in the Reviewboard documentation.

My first idea was to modify the URL and use the Accept header to
request a JSON response. That worked, but the default number of
repositories that are included in the response is 25. You need an
extra request to get the total count first and then include that count
in the second request (both, according to the documentation, should be
GET requests) so that's the workflow I'm planning to implement. If so,
then I wouldn't be using the HttpPostCall but doing everything inside
the ProjectRequest. Makes any sense?

Anyhow, I found this bug

which is technically not the same issue as we have now (because I
remember it didn't work before, when I was also using KDevelop 4.2, I
remember it working in KDevelop 4.3 with latest KDevPlatform and now
it doesn't work again) but I think we could use that space to discuss
further if needed.
