I am not able to reply to some comments on Rietveld. When I tried to reply to
the comments by loewis at, I
get an error saying "Error: AssertionError; please report!". This takes the form
of red text replacing the comment I was replying to, and appears after I enter
my reply and hit "Save".

This does not happen if I first try to enter a reply to one of the previous
batch of comments (by amaury.forgeotdarc) first, discard it, and then reply to
one of loewis's comments.

This may be related to issue 402 - I am still not able to sign in to Rietveld
without temporarily changing my username.

I'm constantly getting this error:

Exception Type: AttributeError at /review/7652/show
Exception Value: 'NoneType' object has no attribute 'user_has_selected_nickname'

Does that look like the same issue or should I open another one?

Nope, that looks like a different error. The one I was getting was an AssertionError,
not an AttributeError.

The recommended way of contributing to Python is now GitHub pull requests and we no longer maintain our Rietveld instance.

Closing this issue.
