We've successfully synced indigo. Next is to look at groovy.

As a quick update. We have built up 174 updates to packages in the groovy
rosdistro preparing to sync. You can see the status I'm looking at here:

to arm_experimental which has been discussed in this thread earlier. To see
the current status of regressions see here:
http://www.ros.org/debbuild/groovy.html?q=regression If there are packages
here which you care about please contact the maintainers.

We'll also be looking to sync hydro soon too. There are a few regressions
here too: http://www.ros.org/debbuild/hydro.html?q=regression which are
blocking another large bunch of packages to sync:
