What is the meaning of the below tags in the package.xml file? Should I use them if my package does not generate messages?

<build_depend>std_msgs</build_depend>
<build_depend>message_generation</build_depend>
<exec_depend>std_msgs</exec_depend>
<exec_depend>message_runtime</exec_depend>

<build_depend> : specify the packages that are needed to build the package <exec_depend> : specify the packages that are needed to run the code of the package

But i am assuming that you want to solve another problem?

Blockquote Should I use them if my package does not generate messages?

If you can describe in more detail what the problem is, then we can help you better.
