If you have push access to the  workspace, you should be able to  to do 
this now.  I have not tried it myself, but if you have problems, just 
create a zip of the webrev directory and include it with your review 
request email or just email it to whomever has volunteered to review.

There is not tutorial outside of the blog that I know of but this should 
get you started

It is really pretty straightforward, it will create a directory with the 
generated html files of your changes... I believe some versions might 
create a zip for you of your webrev.
