I've created a package with a source file as always.

roscreate-pkg testpkg roscpp

rosmake testpkg

But now it created several strange catkin files in the folder build and no source file of my code was build:

catkin/ CATKIN_IGNORE CMakeFiles/ devel/ Makefile catkin_generated/ CMakeCache.txt cmake_install.cmake gtest/ test_results/

And it doesn't work :/, I've never used catkin where does it come from!?

Delete the CATKIN_IGNORE file and rosmake will work again.

Update to latest catkin version to prevent the generation of that files.
