Hi everyone!

I downloaded the gazebo development version and I'm working on it. How can I create a diff file of all gazebo package (including the sourcecode) to see my changes and easily make a patch??

I downloaded the simulator gazebo from: svn co ~/simulator_gazebo/

Added the new simulator gazebo path to ROS_PACKAGE_PATH and build. It takes like 700 seconds and then all is OK, in build folder is all the source code.

If I do a "svn st" all the folders are with a "?" If I do a svn info it returns:

Path: . URL: Repository Root: Repository UUID: eb33c2ac-9c88-4c90-87e0-44a10359b0c3 Revision: 38270

And if I do a svn diff it don't return anything (even if a made some changes in the source code). What am I doing wrong? or what is the proper way of do it?

I already found the answer to my own question, when you are working with development versions, the source code package is donwloaded when you do a rosmake, in my case if you go to simulator_gazebo/gazebo folder, it should be a "Makefile.gazebo.trunk" this file contain all the information required to building the code. There is the location of the source code repository. In my case is in:


You can do a "svn co" of this repository, add your changes and then do a "svn diff", this will return you a patch file from gazebo source code. I did this to attach this patch to a gazebo defect ticket with IRSensor
