I've created a Docker Ubuntu Wily test environment for MoveIt! but there continues to be [various tests that fail](https://travis-ci.org/ros-planning/moveit_ci/jobs/176416377) in Wily but are fine in Xenial. In addition OMPL doesn't build on Wily as we've been discussing [here](https://bitbucket.org/ompl/ompl/issues/293/ompl-build-timeout-on-ros-buildfarm) because of tests that behave differently than Xenial. We also spent a lot of time fixing differences in URDFDom on Wily, as I mentioned earlier. MoveIt! continues to be blocked from being released into Kinetic because of obscure Wily problems that matter to no one because Wily is end of life. This is a huge waste of time!

Is there no way to release for Kinetic and ignore breakages in Wily? Asking us to support that platform is a huge burden for volunteer developers trying to release a framework with many dependencies.
