Subject: Re: [ros-release] Packages blocking TurtleBot in Kinetic
Hi Jack,

It is needed for supporting some of the Kinect variants, not all of them
work with OpenNI. It's also been a little easier to support exotic
computing platforms with this driver. I'd prefer to keep the Kinect support
for the TurtleBot for now.

There is a rosdep for libfreenect-dev which I
hope could replace the libfreenect ros package. but is not necessary.

I hope rereleasing will be just a few minutes since there's been no changes
for a long time and we can just move on.

We chose for the TurtleBot maintenance load to only do the LTS releases
which is why we didn't push to have this released into Jade.


PS for anyone making releases please remember to update rosdistro and bloom
before running. And if bloom prompts for new actions allow it since we've
added targets for debian Jessie and Fedora.
