I'm trying to build the full ros-hydro system according to the instructions in the wiki. When I try to run the rosinstall_generator for desktop-full:

$ rosinstall_generator desktop-full --rosdistro hydro --deps

this only tells me:

The following not released packages/stacks will be ignored: desktop-full No packages/stacks left after ignoring not released

Why is desktop-full not released (yet?)?

All variants have been replaced with metapackages in Hydro. Therefore they now do follow the ROS naming conventions which uses underscores instead of hyphen.

The following command works for me:

$ rosinstall_generator desktop_full --rosdistro hydro --deps

This solved my problem when I was trying to upgrade to hydra, thank you. Could someone possibly edit the install page of the wiki to reflect this?

I have updated the wiki page. Please feel free to make changes to the wiki yourself in the future if you are sure about the modifications.
