Hi Florian, there is no regular schedule as that depends on whether there
are any build jobs running. The Electric synchronization was indeed
neglected as we focused more on Fuerte. We'd be very happy to have people
help us with that so please contact us if you want to help.

Anybody can subscribed to the shadow repository (the repository before the
synchronization to the official one), its address is:
(it is useful to track regressions before we things are made public)

Synchronization is just a matter of running a script but it has to be done
manually to make sure the state of the release is stable: stable meaning
the http://www.ros.org/debbuild/electric.html page "looks" stable.

Releases are now supported for a year (so only Electric and Fuerte are
supported at the moment).
