I was exploring the rosbridge package and noticed a package called roswww. Is that just the package that rosbridge uses for server logic (connection management)?

I haven't been able to find any documentation on roswww..

Can someone point me somewhere for more information, or explain what roswww is / what role it plays in the rosbridge package?

Thanks, -James

roswww is a deprecated package in Fuerte that was used for serving files with a web server using the ROS file system. That is, when running, you could access files in a ROS package with something like: http://localhost:8080/my_package/launch/mylaunch.launch

In essence, it had no real relationship to rosbridge and hence was removed.
