I've seen questions in the last six years about urdf and sdf differences, and about converting from one format to the other, about which format is better.. Thank you everyone for the great discussion.

My understanding is that gazebo can handle sdf and urdf, all of ros can handle only urdf, there is no supported way to convert from sdf to urdf (this tool mostly handled sdf->urdf) and sdf is the more flexible format.

Are there plans to have ros2 handle sdf files?

Afaik this discussion has not seen any conclusion.

Ports of both urdf and xacro to ROS 2 have been done, but those were "convenience ports" (ie: they were necessary (for some demo) and were straight ports).
