Good Morning ROS Releasers-

I'm working on getting the core youBot drivers and libraries into the build system. As part of the build process, it is necessary to run setcap on a few executables that we are compiling (see https://github.com/WPI-RAIL/youbot_driver/blob/groovy-devel/src/testing/CMakeLists.txt#L26-L28 for an example). As such, if someone is building this from source, this must be run as root.

The package (youbot_driver) is passing the pre-release (http://jenkins.willowgarage.com:8080/job/prerelease-groovy-youbot_driver/ARCH_PARAM=amd64,UBUNTU_PARAM=precise,label=prerelease/3/) but is failing on the main build farm with the following error (full log at http://jenkins.willowgarage.com:8080/job/ros-groovy-youbot-driver_binarydeb_quantal_amd64/1/console):

/bin/sh: 1: sudo: not found

Is it necessary to have to put 'sudo' in rosdep and list it as a dependency?
