It looks like several packages(ROS-I, PR2, and others) are held on Quantal
due to a failure in arm-navigation-experimental.  I'm working on tracking
down the issue.  The build logs complain about a parser issue on
BOOST:JOIN.  I found this helpful link:
 It appears to be a bug in QT, that has been fixed, but maybe not on
Quantal?  I'm quickly getting out of my element, so I figured I'd see if
anybody else already tackled this problem.

> 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

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