[Ros-release] Groovy prerelease failed for packages depending on gazebo

Hi release experts,


we are currently releasing into groovy, but get errors [1,2] for the prerelease step for packages depending on any package in the simulator_gazebo stack (e.g. gazebo, gazebo_plugins). We also tried to trigger a prerelease for an existing package depending on gazebo [3,4] with the same result.

The error is that the debian packages for gazebo are parsed correctly from the stack and package information and installed. As soon as the release script runs "rosdep install -y mypackage" apt needs to install some more packages but removes ros-groovy-simulator-gazebo. How can we prevent gazebo from being uninstalled? As it occurs also for existing packages we assume it is a conflict in the release version of gazebo of some dependencies. Can you please help us sorting this out?


Best regards,
