[ros-release] ROS Groovy EOL Planning

Hi Everyone,

With Indigo Igloo released, and as we prepare to setup the infrastructure
for Jade Turtle, Groovy Galapagos has now reached it’s End-of-Life.  We are
looking at turning the groovy jobs off on the buildfarm in the near future,
after which the groovy packages will still be available, however we will no
longer be able to build updated packages or documentation.  As such I’d
like to suggest that groovy maintainers take a few minutes and verify that
documentation and packages for groovy are stable and if there’s anything
outstanding which should be taken care of, that the groovy maintainers do
so now.

There are almost 100 updated packages queued for release which we would
like to get out.  However there are several packages currently regressing
on the groovy debbuild status page. [1]

We will plan to release groovy a week from Friday, September 3rd, with as
many update to packages as possible. After which we will freeze new
releases into groovy.  As with any releases there is a chance of
regression. So we will keep the buildfarm operational for the remainder of
September, but only accept regression patch fixes. After which all groovy
jobs will be turned off.

If you have any feedback, questions, or suggestions please let us know.
