Your original license was probably expired when a new version of the
license agreement was introduced some number of years ago.

Regarding the reviewboard issue, AFAIK, it's still looking at the
mantis database.  Someone will have to manually create an account for
you in the reviewboard admin interface and then it will work.

Long term (IMO, anyway...), reviewboard needs to be updated to use the
same auth backend as JIRA (Atlassian's SSO system, crowd), or the
project will need to migrate to the Atlassian code review tool.

I made some progress getting reviewboard to use this crowd auth
backend for django, but wasn't able to finish by the time I left


It's not really a project that someone outside of Digium can help with, though.
