Does this mean i can still see:
 * Diffs
 * emails of the people that made those diffs

Diffs should definitely be - as long as they're not broken due to the issue
I noted.

As you wouldn't be able to access them currently there is no change in that

In terms of email addresses this will only be the case if Reviewboard
displays them publicly. Their username will still be shown though which we
can lookup on Identity.


After phase 2?
