Preparing for Noetic Sync 2021-08-13

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 2021-08-13. Please comment here if there are any issues I should know about before performing the sync.

There are currently 82 packages waiting to sync and 3 regressions.

PCL concatenatePointClouds() is deprecated in Noetic and replaced with concatenate(), but I have failed builds for Debian Buster source jobs.

Is this for ira_laser_tools? Since it doesn’t currently have packages in Debian Buster it doesn’t need to be fixed before the sync happens.

Ubuntu Focal uses 1.10 while Debian Buster uses 1.9.1. I would recommend using PCL_VERSION_COMPARE to use concatenatePointClouds() when using 1.9, and concatenate() when using 1.`0. Here’s an example I found.
