Preparing for Kinetic Sync 2019-08-06

Kinetic Maintainers,

We have 126 updated packages but I’ve noticed one regression causing several failures which I’ve ticketed upstream:

FYI @Felix_Messmer

Other than that the sync looks clean. Please reply here if there’s anything else to track.

I hope to have a quick resolution to that issue before Thursday. If not I’ll plan to roll it back as well as associated recent releases as necessary. And will plan to execute the sync on Friday.

thanks for the hint, I am aware of it…
cob_robots will see a new release on it’s own asap
it’s just because i couldn’t do all cob-repos in one stroke - its 20+ and we are doing our initial melodic release, too
i intend to get it done today

there is also https://github.com/ros/rosdistro/pull/21920 that could use a clarifying comment from an expert

Great thanks!

In the future if you have groups of packages that would do better with a coordinated release. Please comment on the PRs and we can hold them in the queue and merge them together to not end up with the buildfarm in an inconsistent state like it is now.

I’ve replied over there.

sorry about that, but we tried to achieve dual-distro compatibility (kinetc+melodic) and the dependencies demand some packages to be released only after some other packages have been indexed in rosdistro…

I’ve released a new version of cob_robots (https://github.com/ros/rosdistro/pull/21954)
but the Python 3.6 job fails (https://travis-ci.org/ros/rosdistro/jobs/568798763) and I can’t see why

also, friendly ping, if someone could proceed merging some of the following PRs:
