Questions

I chose these questions this week because they are questions that come up way too often and indicate that we need to improve the ROS 2 docs. If you are interested in helping with the ROS 2 docs, or are willing to port an article from the ROS Wiki to the ROS 2 Docs, please let me know. In particular, if you have a lot of experience with ROS 2 launch files I would love your help.
