The easiest reasoning is, "have I released my stack since I downloaded
rosdep 2"? If no, probably should re-release.

Thus far I have only pulled freiburg_tools and vision_visp.  I have
tried to be conservative and only pull if the stack causes pre-release
issues with other stacks (yes, the pre-release could be more
resilient).  The list might grow, though the freeze has past and the
tide of releases has slowed.

If you visit:


and it is grey when you expect it to be white, then you are probably
on the list.

Regardless, as a stack maintainer, it is good to get familiar with the
changes introduced by rosdep 2.  It is a fairly big transition, but it
has made servicing updates to the db much faster and also pointed out
some consistency issues that are more easily resolved.
