Hey WG folk, I noticed a good deal of activity in wg-ros-pkg that involves converting packages to use arm_navigation_msgs. Where is arm_navigation_msgs? It doesn't show up in ros_wiki_docs, and I've had no luck looking through the available source.

Thanks, Sean

Almost all of the activity of wg-ros-pkg these days is getting ready for the electric release, and the refactoring we're doing for arm_navigation is a big part of that. We're also increasingly moving away from shoving everything into wg-ros-pkg to making projects on that may have one or more associated repositories. For electric we're collapsing the core stacks associated with arm_navigation into two stacks - arm_navigation and arm_navigation_experimental. These stacks are now in separate mercurial repos in the Arm Navigation project: . The arm navigation stack has the new arm_navigation_msgs package - you can check out the very latest and greatest of these stacks by overlaying the following using rosinstall:

The refactoring we've been doing has not yet been released into the unstable debs but that should be happening very soon - for now if you want to check it out you'll have to pull from source. But I will warn you that things are very unstable - things should settle down soon as we've got an impending feature freeze.
