Request for Kinetic Sync



Hi all, my team at Amazon has been working on several new nodes (and dependent packages) for ROS1 - Kinetic. We are following the guidelines supplied here.

The last step of the process seems to be a sync that is initiated by OSRF in order to get our packages available in public repositories.

Are there plans for a Kinetic Sync anytime soon (I notice that there was a sync on 10/26).
If not, is there a request process to initiate a sync?



We have an approximately 2 week cadence for new syncs to the main repository. If there’s urgent issues for a sync this is the place to request it. This cycle may be a little bit longer (into early next week) as there’s been a few lower level packages that were released earlier this week and are still rebuilding and I’d like to see some more soak time after the rebuild is complete.

For testing you can use the ros-shadow-fixed Repository for testing. This will give you the latest completed rebuild to test against. The repository is publicly accessible and recommended for active developers and early adopters. If we find bugs in this stage they can be rolled back. After they have been synced an new higher release must be made to revert any changes that have gone into the main repository.
