These packages are now treated as any other upstream software we use for
ROS (opencv, boost, ...) so you just need to release the sources with a
version tag.

Packaging work will be done downstream (debian, fedora, gentoo, ...)
instead of running bloom to generate packages in the ROS building farm.
