Next ROS Quality Assurance Working Group Meeting for December 2019

Dear ROS community,

The QA Working Group for the month of December will take place 2019-12-05T14:00:00Z.


  1. Talk by Dr. Christopher Timperley

Title: 188 ROS bugs later: Where do we go from here?
Talk description: What kinds of bugs do programmers encounter when developing ROS applications?
Are those bugs unique to ROS? What can we do to avoid them?
To answer these questions, we have been conducting a joint industry-academia effort over
a two-year period to systematically identify and forensically analyse 188 bugs across 9
ROS packages from diverse projects. In this talk, we share our experiences, discuss our
findings, and propose a small set of simple interventions that can improve the quality of
your ROS applications today.

  1. Discuss how we can accelerate the review and merge of the current initiatives:
    1. QA Dashboard. Link to the pending PR.
    2. The CI Badge for Link to the pending PR.
    3. The list of pending PRs for review. Link to the pending PR.
  2. Discuss next quality initiative.
    1. Gijs proposed a warning message for outdated ROS packages Wiki pages.
    2. HAROS for ROS 2
    3. Quick introduction to quality flaws identified while researching on security

Please, let me know if you like to add item to the agenda for discussion?
