Probably should have been searching for 'rocon', not 'roscon'. Nonetheless,
I believe your comment is correct. I wonder if the older ones were carried
over from legacy packaging systems. I just noticed none of my newer rosjava
ones turned up there.

Since bloom's configuration asks for source url's, could it validate and
send pull requests here if they are missing? Not high priority, but it
would automate a step.


PS I edited the wiki page to hint how to get devel pre-releases from source
started. It's a touch mysterious that 'devel' doesn't appear on the
pre-release web site, even after you've done a release.
