I tried to run the test cases of rosmsg but they depend on a 'test_ros' package that is not listed in the package xml and also not listed in the repositories. Can someone tell me where I can get this package?

There is a test_ros package in ros_comm from the Fuerte release. It contains only message and service definitions.

It looks like test_ros was renamed to test_rosmaster. test_rosmaster has all the same service and message definitions as the old test_ros package

test_rosmaster is listed on the packages packages page in the wiki.

The wiki page says the website for test_rosmaster is just rosmaster

The messages are duplicated at several positions. But the tests need a "test_ros" package:

I just wanted to add test cases for a Pull Request, but that's quite hard if the test cases don;t run...
