How to tell which version of a package was tagged for a particular release?

Hi, I'm trying to determine which version of joystick_drivers was tagged for electric. I could brush up on my svn foo and sniff around the repository, but I figure there must be a list somewhere which I haven't been able to find. Bonus points if you can then point me to the tarball for that release.

For each stack on the wiki they have a subpage Releases which lists the released versions. For example see the geometry/Releases page. This is linked to in the stack header.

I usually open synaptic package manager (if you're not on ubuntu this won't be helpful) and enter the driver name. It will have a "ros-[releasename]-joystick-drivers"

I feel like the name of the release should be added to the xml of a package for any developers reading this, but if you are just using svn I would try to compile it. If it doesn't work, use the rosmake --rosdep-install If it still doesn't work, then I would just look elsewhere.

Sorry if I'm not being very helpful... What distro are you running?
