Where can a support ticket be filed for a missing os and release. I am porting groovy to the Raspberry PI and the Raspbain os (arm6hf) Fuerte already works on this platform with a few lies (ie. ROS_OS_OVERRIDE=debian:squeeze). I have used the same override but I still find that rosdep is missing a lot of libraries that have been loaded including rospkg.
If you can point me to the files I can supply the changes for the code to support this.

Partial Answer - After searching for the rosdep documentation I found the docs and took the rosdep documentation link to which lists the current os's for fuerte. On that page is listed the developers guide link. In that page there is the hint that the program called is rospkg.os_detect. I then went to the master library (Internet) and asked the head librarian (google) what was rospkg.os_detect and the first answer given was from I went there and that page has information on OS Detection. It also supplied a test command line that allowed me to start finding the software programs. python -m rospkg.os_detect From that I was able to change down the filesystem tree and find rospkg/ Now I have a place to start the necessary mods for adding a new system/release.

I have just found on my machine the initial info for what to change: /usr/local/lib/python2.7/dist-packages/rospkg inside this is the script. It appears that code changes have to be made to identify the os and release here.

All package wiki pages should have a link at the bottom to open tickets. rosdep has one

And I think that there's a related ticket already.

For adding support for a new OS the developers guide has instructions.
