Can anyone tell me what happened to the (usual) source code location inside the /stacks folder? After an installation of ros-hydro-desktop-full, the size of /opt/ros/hydro is 279.5 MB compared to Fuerte's 3.1 GB.

For packages which have transitioned to the new buildsystem catkin, the source is not installed by default.

If you want the source for a debian package. Duplicate the line in your apt.sources.list file and put 'deb-src' instead of 'deb'

Then you can apt-get source PACKAGENAME
