@kent I see that you are the maintainer of this package in ROS, hence I’m tagging you here in this post.

Hi @prasenjitdan! Thanks for taking this on! I do not know of anyone currently working on this port.

Just so you know, Scanse shutdown, and thus sweep is no longer being produced.

I’m happy to give you permissions to the repo if you’re interested in continuing development.

@kent, Thanks for the confirmation. As sweep device is no longer manufactured, porting this package to ROS2 may not be needed. We will monitor the need to port this package and take action as needed in future.
