Hi All,

One of the most strongly supported features discussed in the ROS
Buildsystem SIG was to release ROS packages as debian packages.
Required to do this is to have packaging and build dependencies in
each package. Based on our discussions on the SIG Dirk has put together
REP 127 with a proposal to replace stack.xml and manifest.xml with
package.xml http://www.ros.org/reps/rep-0127.html

Please take a look and provide feedback. Please reply to
ros-sig-buildsystem [..] ...
<mailto:ros-sig-buildsystem [..] ...> for the discussion.

PS: We will also be releasing REPs to update 122-125 shortly as well.
