Attachments in ROS wiki not working [closed]

asked 2013-01-15 12:34:49 -0500

Citing the ROS Wiki Attachments page:

"Attached Files To refer to attachments on a page, use attachment:filename, as shown below in the list of files. Do NOT use the URL of the [get] link, since this is subject to change and can break easily."

However, I get a 500 Internal Server Error whenever I link that way (example here). The [get] link, on the other hand, works fine.

Who should I contact to get this fixed? The 500 Internal Server Error page only refers to webmaster@localhost (i.e. no contact info is provided).

@KruseT: Thanks for this, I was not aware of that message since I signed up to ros-users only a couple months later. In this case, however, the attachment is legitimate because I have no control over the repository for the package and it is quite useful to users (it's a patch to get it to work).

If possible paste the patch online (e.g. github gist) and just add a link to that file in the wiki.
