I assume you meant question 1223, and it has been answered:

Q: Does <R14>, particularly "cease all software development", preclude teams from changing code (variable values, PID gains, "broken" code, new functionality, etc.) after the Fix-It Window on our now-legal practice robot (per Q&A #1026).
A: You may do whatever on your practice robot but you must recreate your "fixes" onsite at a competition.

I think this was the only reasonable answer. I'm surprised that the question needed to be asked in the first place.

From my viewpoint as a software engineer, they are perfectly analogous.

Re: 'Fix It Window' and Programming....

Does applying a patch cover recreating the code? Wouldn't that be analagous to bringing a complete set of drawings for an item for the onsite machine shop to create?

Re: 'Fix It Window' and Programming....

I would see making a patch as making a part to put onto the robot since you just drop it onto the greater part of a whole. Bringing notes and papers would be like bringing drawings. It has everything you need to make the part, but it isn't the part itself.

Re: 'Fix It Window' and Programming....

That is kinda the problem with code: As soon as you get specific, it's plug/play.

My suggestion is to implement it in psuedo-code.
