As you may have noticed, the ros buildfarm doesn’t [build packages for EOL ubuntu distributions anymore] (Suspension of Debian packaging for EOL’d Distros (Saucy, Utopic, Vivid, and Wily))
Currently bloom generates control files for each distribution defined in the
distribution.yaml files from rosdistro.
In an effort to make releasing packages and maintenance easier, we decided to stop blooming packages for EOL distributions. The original discussion is available here.
To do so we will remove EOL distributions from the rosdistro distribution files.
Before rolling out this change we wanted some feedback, from the members of the community building their own packages, regarding this change. Feel free to post feedback directly on this thread
