I tried to use some packages with new Fuerte Beta 1, but in some reasons they did not work. I fixed this problems and made patches. What is appropriate way to share them? Some packages seems to be abandoned.

If you already have patches, the best thing to do is to find the correct bug tracker for your package and create a bug report and attach your patch to the bug report.

If it is urgent, you can then email with the bug id which helps make sure nothing gets lost.

Many package's bug trackers are on

For example if you have a TurtleBot related problem, bug reports can be submitted to

Also many packages and stack list the tracker in their documentation such as which has a bug tracker at

Depends ... what packages are you talking about? Please be more specific when you ask a question.

In general terms I would suggest emailing the with the patches since this is a development subject for an un-released ROS. I am assuming you are talking about core ROS packages and not third party packages.
