    • Important to keep the existing CI infrastructure
    • Iterating on small spirals for now, making sure submodules compile
    • Logging being discussed at Input is welcome
    • Dave asked if developers had comments about our approach
    • Discussed the compatibility between moveit and moveit2, eventually we’ll diverge due to some changes
    • (personal comment) it’ll help a lot getting some additional insight on those changes so that we all can help
    • Dave shared his insights about maintaining compatibility by making active use of ROS bridges.
    • Víctor shared that approach already works fine and has been used by their team for a while
  • Discussion about moveit_msgs
  • Having a faster response time to PRs was discussed. Assigned PRs by categories/expertise to reduce the level of noise and allow maintainers to focus
  • Tesseract-related collision checking into moveit discussion
  • Mike working on, allows to generate grasp candidates
    • for now working for cuboids
    • aiming to merge it in the core moveit repo
  • Robert mentioned that they’ve been working on a multi-gripper solution also backed by yaml files, he said that the community will have several options for grasp generations
