I think it might be that the prerelease is installing the union of build and run depends, skipping the test_depends.  If that's true, then rostest won't be installed, if that's how it should be will take a trip to the white board with some sketching to answer.

Looks like the "ros" stack dependency no longer works. I added <depend
stack="ros_comm" />, and the pre-release tests seem to work now. That
must be why rostest was not getting installed.

If the tests all succeed, I will release camera1394-1.8.1 to Groovy soon.

Is the stack dependency on "ros" even needed these days? Without
rosstack, it's hard to figure out the correct dependencies for dry
