Arguably, ROS Crawl should be a fork of rosindex. However, key
features that I don't believe rosindex has are
1) Tracking the build farm status of the packages. Note that octomap
currently has 1.6.8 in public and 1.6.9 in shadow fixed[1] for indigo.
rosindex shows that it is version 1.6.8 but doesn't reflect the build
status (as far as I can see)[2]. ROS Crawl shows that octomap in
indigo is currently "waiting for re-release". One of the main (and
trickiest) features is parsing the pattern of boxes on the build farm
status page[1] and translating it into something short and

2) Introducing high level structure to the lists of packages based on
what repository its in, what organization owns that repository, and
who the maintainers are.
