hi Jack,

The catkin-controlled stacks have their own build infrastructure,
which isn't yet complete.  Among other things, we're missing the
ability to do pre-release builds.  However, we do have per-stack devel
builds, which test trunk/master/tip of each stack against the very
latest debs of stacks on which they depend.  Your change to
common_msgs hasn't broken that build:
What's missing here is a build and test of the stuff that depends on
common_msgs.  We'll bring that up as soon as we can.
