Preparing for Noetic Sync 2021-06-25

Hello Noetic maintainers!

Starting now, I will be holding new Noetic ros/rosdistro release PRs with a plan to sync ROS Noetic packages to the main apt repo on 2021/06/25. Please comment here if there are any issues I should know about before performing the sync.

There are currently 140 packages waiting to sync and one regression in the bota_driver repository on armhf.

Looks like there is a regression in rviz: Rviz Freezes on "Save Config as" · Issue #1641 · ros-visualization/rviz · GitHub.
I hope to receive feedback about this issue today. Otherwise, I would probably revert the potentially offending PR Continue processing messages while displaying dialogues by rhaschke · Pull Request #1639 · ros-visualization/rviz · GitHub.

Hi @sloretz,
I have resolved the regression bug and made a relevant PR.

The rviz issue turns out to be hard to reproduce. I’m not sure it really is an issue actually. Hence, this is not blocking the release anymore.

Thanks for updating!

The sync is out :tada: . Now is a great time to make releases for the next sync :fireworks:

Hi @sloretz, is there a sync schedule posted anywhere? I was just curious if it’s possible to know in advance when certain ROS distro syncs will happen. Currently they appear to happen roughly every month?

Roughly every 3 to 4 weeks. It can get delayed if there are regressions that need to be fixed.
