I'm not entirely familiar with how the rosinstall files are supposed to look, but it looks like the file is generating invalid rosinstall files.

1.) If I just run rosinstall from the site directly, I get the error:

ahhhhhhhh, yaml parse error: mapping values are not allowed here in "<file>", line 5, column 8

2.) If I download the empty file, I needed to remove the spaces between the key and value pairs on line 5.

I.e. Line 5 Goes from: [{'svn': {'local-name': 'ros', 'uri': ''}}, {'svn': {'local-name': 'ros_comm', 'uri': ''}}]

To: [{'svn':{'local-name':'ros', 'uri':''}}, {'svn':{'local-name':'ros_comm', 'uri':''}}]

3.) Then, the first 4 lines are:

Do the parsing
Check if rosdistro exists
Check if stack exists
Check if variant exists

I had to remove these also from my rosinstall file that I had saved.

Is this a bug? Should I register this with the bug-tracker?

This is a bug. It looks like debugging code got released. Please file a blocker ticket on the ros trac

Okay thanks, I've filed a bug. I was a little nervous filing the bug right away incase I was misunderstanding/mis-using rosinstall.
