I've just installed ROS Kinetic from source on my Raspberry Pi (running Raspbian Stretch), and I'd like to add rosserial and rosserial_arduino. When I looked up the packages with roslocate, I got this:

pi@raspberrypi:~/ros_catkin_ws $ roslocate info rosserial
Using ROS_DISTRO: kinetic
- git:
    local-name: rosserial
    uri: https://github.com/ros-drivers/rosserial.git
    version: jade-devel

pi@raspberrypi:~/ros_catkin_ws $ roslocate info rosserial_arduino
Using ROS_DISTRO: kinetic
- git:
    local-name: rosserial_arduino
    uri: https://github.com/ros-drivers/rosserial.git
    version: jade-devel

I haven't generated a rosinstall including these yet, because I'm worried about those version descriptions. Is it nothing to worry about, or do I have to do something special to get the Kinetic versions rather than the Jade ones?

Answering my own question after looking at the details of older versions on rosserial's wiki page: it's actually the right version. Rosserial jade-devel is the version to use for Kinetic (and Lunar.)
