ROS2 with Laser support

Is there any plan to official support of laser driver (urg_node) on ROS2 for Turtlebot2_cartographer and navigation?

Seems urg_node packages has been porting by @bponsler (https://github.com/bponsler/urg_node.git), basic function works for turtlebot2 cartographer mapping as we quick verified. Will this project be able to merge/include in https://github.com/ros2/ ?

A package doesn’t need to be hosted on the ros2 org unit on GitHub in order to be “supported”. In ROS 1 many packages are being maintained by different people and hosted in various places.

For the recent Beta 2 release we didn’t have the ability yet that anyone can release a ROS 2 package to the buildfarm. But that will be the case in the future the same as it is for ROS 1.
