Preparing for Kinetic Sync 2020-05-13

Kinetic Maintainers,

We have just over 40 new packages ready for Kinetic and we’re due for a sync.

I’ve identified one regression for mavros_extras @vooon If you could take a look this week that would be great.

Besides a fix for that I will plan to hold new kinetic releases until the end of this week and sync on 2020-05-15T07:00:00Z

If there’s anything else to be considered please reply to this thread.

The sync is out:

@tfoote it seems as though one of the mirrors may be out of sync after this update (we started experiencing some build-server inconsistencies over the weekend).

For example, repeated runs of

wget  http://packages.ros.org/ros/ubuntu/pool/main/p/python-catkin-pkg-modules/python-catkin-pkg-modules_0.4.20-1_all.deb

will fail when the 64.50.236.52 mirror is used (but succeed otherwise).

Not sure whether that sync specifically is the cause, but this was also reported on ROS Answers: Different versions of python3-catkin-pkg-modules are distributed on packages.ros.org.

Thanks for noticing this. We have 3 mirrors and one appears to be out of date causing these issues. We’re tracking it here.
