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).
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.
