When will Cartographer be packaged with ROS Noetic?

I've recently installed ROS Noetic and have found that Cartographer is not packaged with it "out of the box" like in Melodic and therefore needs to be installed from source. Does anyone have any idea whether this might be in the pipeline?

Perhaps not what you came to hear, but: have you asked the maintainers/developers? They are the ones who should release it.

pedantic, but Cartographer never "came packaged" with any ROS version.

It's not part of any of the standard variants described in REP 150 (ROS Melodic and Newer Metapackages), so whether it is available for any ROS version will depend on whether the developers/maintainers have released it.

Edit: and according to one of the maintainers (from cartographer-project/cartographer_ros#1512):

We plan to release for Noetic, but it's not yet fixed when and how we want to do it.
