Migrating ros2/launch ROS specific packages to ros2/launch_ros

Hi everyone!

Just as an FYI, in order to integrate Apex.AI contributions to launch testing, and to enable its use in lower layers of the ROS 2 stack, ROS specific packages are being moved out of the ros2/launch repository and into the brand new ros2/launch_ros repository.

If you’re maintaining a source checkout for development on master, please update your workspace using the latest ros2.repos file.

Thanks for the heads up, @hidmic. You say the packages “are being moved,” but are they in fact already moved, and thus using the latest ros2.repos file as of now will get the rename?

@kyrofa just moved with https://github.com/ros2/launch/pull/211 and https://github.com/ros2/launch_ros/pull/1, and yes, using the latest ros2.repos will get the rename.
