Smach for ROS 2

Hey All,

I was just curious as to whether or not there has been any work/initial planning done for porting smach to ROS 2?

I’ve checked the Collaboration Bulletin Board and I noticed that work has been done for the design of actions but there was no mention of smach.

Would this be a situation where ROS 2 actions would strive to be inherently compatible with smach or would smach update to become compatible with ROS 2 actions? I know that the ROS 2 action design was inspired by actionlib so I’m curious as to how far off smach would be from already being compatible.

Thanks for your time.
