New Packages for Kinetic 2018-01-09

We’re happy to announce 22 new packages and 175 updated packages. This includes the restoration of the regressed costmap packages from the last sync.

Thank you to all the maintainers and contributors who have helped make this possible.

Is there a way to add hyperlinks to package home pages that would provide some summary what that package is about?
Now I type google search (example: bus-server), go through a few pages that are unrelated, like general ROS “package” installation, and finally hit something usable after 6 links that the search returned. It can be easier than that.

If others already know a short way to find information, please share.

Cheers

@tfoote was bus_server supposed to make it into this sync? I removed it from the kinetic rosdistro after the rename to loki_base_node.

EDIT: Looks like I forgot to rename the dependency in loki_bringup, ran a new release. Is there anything else needed to ensure proper deletion?

I totally agree with @boltrobotics, I also searched on Google for several packages without direct success.

The default location to find a package is on the ROS wiki with the package name. So for package cost_map which is packaged into the debian package ros-kinetic-cost-map see http://wiki.ros.org/cost_map

I opened a PR to embed the declared homepage as a link in the summary last week. We are targeting to roll it out before the next sync.

WRT to bus_server as @rohbotics alluded, that was a package released temporarily but after review was renamed to loki_base_node which is why you can’t find any documentation. There’s an outstanding ticket to automatically clear removed packages in this situation but we haven’t had time to implement it.

Yes, I know, but it is not always available. A fallback to the Github repo would be nice too.

Very good news, thanks!

An alternative is to check the status pages automatically generated by the ROS buildfarm. They provide a complete list of all released packages including a link to the source repository as well as a link to the wiki page for each package if it exists.
example: amcl package
http://repositories.ros.org/status_page/ros_kinetic_default.html?q=amcl provides a link to the wiki page and the source repository

In the case of packages that don’t have a source of a doc entry (like loki_bringup) the status page provides only a link to the release repository used for rolling out the package.

On a related note, there’s an unmerged PR that aims to encourage package releasers to create pages on ROS wiki https://github.com/ros/rosdistro/pull/15167 (I haven’t had time to make an improvement).

Oh, really interesting.
I did not know that page.
Thanks!
