I am following the rosdep installation/setup instructions as given on the ROS website for OSX/Homebrew, and having run step 2.1.2 (Resolving Dependencies) I get the following errors, in a process that otherwise appears to succeed:

And here are the errors: https://gist.github.com/alexreg/4965426

@kalectro: What does "made it into the generator" mean? Anyway the error still occurs. I'd like to figure out what's going on, although I will take your rm suggestion for now, thanks.

Step 2.1.1 will download all sources produced by a generator. If you want to know which source are being produced, open the link in a browser http://packages.ros.org/web/rosinstall/generate/raw/groovy/desktop Did the rm suggestion work or not?

I'm still not sure what a "generator" (maybe it's like a distribution type) is but alright, cheers! Trying to install with your rm suggestion now. The next step is constantly failing each time I retry, because it reports a certain package is missing usually.

@kalectro: Do you think we could debug this issue anyway? I'm quite curious why it's not working.

@kalectro: So I've actually noticed other errors in the log now, shortly before the ones I posted previously. I've updated the Gist so you can see -- basically the problem is that bad assumptions are being made about the directory structure of the tarballs for some of the tf2 stuff.

It looks like tf2 made it into the generator, that is new. I do not know why you were not able to pull it but you can safely remove it from your src folder because you will most likely not use it.

rm -rf src/tf2*

Maybe it will also work if you just try again, the last commit was 8 hours ago.

I had the same problem and I found that the name of the folder where the geometry_experimental packages untars has changed to geometry2. For example:

geometry_experimental-release-release-indigo-tf2-0.5.11-0 --> geometry2-release-release-indigo-tf2-0.5.11-0
You will need to edit you rosintall file so wstool can find the folder. For example if you had the following in your rosintall file:
- tar:
    local-name: geometry_experimental/tf2
    uri: https://github.com/ros-gbp/geometry_experimental-release/archive/release/indigo/tf2/0.5.11-0.tar.gz
    version: geometry_experimental-release-release-indigo-tf2-0.5.11-0

would need to change into this:

- tar:
    local-name: geometry_experimental/tf2
    uri: https://github.com/ros-gbp/geometry_experimental-release/archive/release/indigo/tf2/0.5.11-0.tar.gz
    version: geometry2-release-release-indigo-tf2-0.5.11-0
