Hi! I'm following this tutorial and when I "catkin_create_pkg robot_setup_tf roscpp tf geometry_msgs" I have this message: "Please adjust the values in package.xml.". This file is:

<description>The robot_setup_tf package</description>
<!-- One maintainer tag required, multiple allowed, one person per tag 
<!-- Example:  -->
<!-- <maintainer email="">Jane Doe</maintainer> 
<maintainer email="antonio@todo.todo">antonio</maintainer>
<!-- One license tag required, multiple allowed, one license per tag 
<!-- Commonly used license strings: -->
<!--   BSD, MIT, Boost Software License, GPLv2, GPLv3, LGPLv2.1, LGPLv3 
<!-- Url tags are optional, but mutiple are allowed, one per tag 
<!-- Optional attribute type can be: website, bugtracker, or repository 
<!-- Example: -->
<!-- <url type="website"></url> 
--><!-- Author tags are optional, mutiple are allowed, one per tag 
--><!-- Authors do not have to be maintianers, but could be 
--><!-- Example: -->
<!-- <author email="">Jane Doe</author> 
--><!-- The *_depend tags are used to specify dependencies 
--><!-- Dependencies can be catkin packages or system dependencies 
--><!-- Examples: -->
<!-- Use build_depend for packages you need at compile time: 
--><!--   <build_depend>message_generation</build_depend> 
--><!-- Use buildtool_depend for build tool packages: -->
<!--   <buildtool_depend>catkin</buildtool_depend> -->
<!-- Use run_depend for packages you need at runtime: -->
<!--   <run_depend>message_runtime</run_depend> -->
<!-- Use test_depend for packages you need only for testing: 
--><!--   <test_depend>gtest</test_depend> -->
<!-- The export tag contains other, unspecified, tags -->
<!-- Other tools can request additional information be placed here 

What I have to change? Can I leave it? Thank you!

Once you've created a package.xml, you should set the license (<license> tags) and the maintainer name (<maintainer> tags).
