Subject: [ros-users] [Discourse.ros.org] [Packaging and Release Management] Reintegrating ros2/rosdistro into ros/rosdistro

For the initial development of ROS 2 we used the forked repo [ros2/rosdistro](https://github.com/ros2/rosdistro) in order to keep it separate from [ros/rosdistro](https://github.com/ros/rosdistro). This enabled us to iterate quickly on standard / format changes without affecting the stability of ROS 1 distributions.

Since that initial phase a lot of the involved pieces have stabilized and also aligned with ROS 1. E.g. both repos use [REP 153](http://www.ros.org/reps/rep-0153.html) now and package manifests are consistently parsed by `catkin_pkg` (even though that naming is a bit confusing in the context of ROS 2).

Therefore it is time to reintegrate the two repos. Please see [#492](https://github.com/ros2/rosdistro/issues/492) for more details. We will start with the transition soon.

For users this change should be transparent (if we didn't miss anything). And maintainers of ROS 2 packages won't need to set a custom `ROSDISTRO_INDEX_URL` anymore which will get rid of the only custom step for blooming ROS 2 packages.

If you notice any issues related to this change please let us know here or on the references ticket.
