  • Rust Buildfarm? What can we do to help?
  • [Grey] clock source PR for ros2rust - Add time source and clock API to nodes by luca-della-vedova · Pull Request #325 · ros2-rust/ros2_rust · GitHub
    • different initialization behavior around ros-time, we believe this behavior is more correct than other client libraries as it prevents incorrect comparisons (comparing a time from the system clock with a sim-time clock)
    • outcome: move pr from draft to ready for review
  • [Steven] Writing up the conversation from roscon about rosdep and cargo
    • next steps: rosdep issue tracker issues, crates dependency management through system
    • next discussion: are packages per-distribution or per-ros-distribution?
