Why do the features of pcl_ros decrease

Now we have a mind to rearrange our pcl ros wrappers, jsk_pcl_ros(http: //, and to send our features to the upstream,https://

But when I see the code of pcl_ros, I feel that the features of the codes are decreasing as the branches of pcl_ros are updated. For example, perception_pcl/pcl_ros/src/{segmentation,surface} are lost. We are also lost about that.

If we send a pull request to bring back the lost features, does ros-perception accept it? And if we send our features to them, does they accept it? What is the policy of maintenance of pcl_ros?

Sorry for my strange English.

I can't speak for the pcl_ros maintainers, but I expect they would accept a well-implemented push request to reinstate missing features.

To make it easy to merge your changes:

I appreciate your detailed answer.

But I want to know whether ros-perception really have a will to merge our pull request if it is good.

I want to avoid needless bother.

Go ahead and open the issue. Explain that you will provide a fix if they are willing to review it and merge if appropriate. You can provide a link to this question.
