As a follow up to the above, ROS-I development leaders have started working up a list of repositories that will be the focus of the inaugural World ROS-Industrial Day on July 11th (WRID18). This will help with making for a manageable scope and allow for tracking of progress throughout the day.
The repositories that are being included for WRID18 at this time are:
On the ros-industrial organisation:
universal_robot repository: this edition of World ROS-Industrial Day we will not be addressing anything related to drivers, pending engagement with Universal Robots. While we are aware of the fact that the current situation is far from ideal, the good news is that recent engagement with Universal Robots will enable improved driver performance in the future. As such, we will focus on the other packages in
universal_robot, such as the robot support, kinematics, MoveIt and Gazebo packages. if there are members of the community that seek to improve current drivers and their performance, they are welcome to do so, but please contact the WRID18 organisers to discuss this.
ros-industrial, over in ros-industrial-consortium:
The maintainers of each of these repositories are in the process, and still in the process of being invited, to review issues within these repositories and label them as candidates for this event.
Candidate issues are labelled with
wrid18, and later with a label to indicate the “level of effort” that would be needed to address the issue so participants can choose tasks to work on based on this.
Finally, all open tasks will be aggregated on a Github organisation-level project board which will be updated live during WRID18 to clearly show progress during the day.
Obviously, if there are other issues you feel are worth considering, or repositories to be included, feel free to add to this thread!
Thanks and looking forward to a great day on July 11th!
