I released a package recently that had some errors ('pid' package v0.0.1). So I fixed the errors and made another pull request which was merged with ros:master. It was merged about two weeks ago. However, if I do 'sudo apt-get install ros-indigo-pid', it still installs v0.0.1... the broken version. Have I done anything wrong or does it just take awhile to update the debians?

Some interesting tidbits... the build status page shows the right version (v0.0.3):

And I got an email recently about "Jenkins build is back to normal." Not sure what that's all about.

Your package is staged in the testing repo.

If you look at the debbuild status page you'll see the new version is in 2 of 3 of the repos.

It's in the testing repository at the moment. Documented here:

About every 2 weeks the packages are synced from ros-shadow-fixed to public. That is when the announcement will got out to ROS-users@ like this

The 2 week timeline is nominal. Sometimes the cycle is longer, sometimes shorter. Issues relating to the release timeline should be discussed on ros-release@
