hi Felix,

Try this, which checks out the cturtle version of the
executive_smach_tutorials stack, which contains the smach_tutorials
  svn co https://code.ros.org/svn/ros-pkg/stacks/executive_smach_tutorials/tags/cturtle
(you could add this into your rosinstall file).

It took some work to find that.  Problems that I encountered:

 * The package wiki page (http://www.ros.org/wiki/smach_tutorials)
contains a broken repository link.
 * Neither roslocate nor ros.org/browse find smach_tutorials when
searching for 'smach' (e.g.,
 * Both roslocate and ros.org/browse find a confusingly named
asmach_tutorials package, in the linux_networking stack.

In the end, I found the package by searching for 'smach_tutorials' in
Trac, and following apparently relevant commits to see where they
went.  Anybody know why this package was hard to find?
