Add a manual update check for static media configuration.
Review Request #3255 — Created Aug. 1, 2012 and submitted
Add a manual update check for static media configuration. Review Board 1.7 requires new static media configuration in the web server config files. As things currently stand, anyone who upgrades will see their media broken. Now, any new upgrades from a database prior to 1.7 final that hasn't had this already resolved will cause a flag to be set in the database indicating that static media needs to be fixed. rb-site will output instructions, and the manual updates page will list instructions as well. Both sets of instructions will say what to type to resolve this. Resolving the manual update check is done by using the new resolve-check management command. This should ensure that all users who upgrade to any release post-1.6.x will see instructions and have to act to make things work again.
Upgraded an older release to 1.7 alpha. Saw the upgrade instructions printed on the console. Verified the flag was set to False (unresolved) in the database. Went to RB and saw the manual updates check. Ran the command given to resolve the check, reloaded, and I was able to view the site again.
