[ros-release] [Discourse.ros.org] [Release] Drop support for Wily

MoveIt! is currently unreleased because the build farm [requires the Ubuntu Wily builds to pass](https://github.com/ros-planning/moveit/issues/18#issuecomment-255480271), and there is a different version of liburdfdom in Wily than Xenial that we did not test for. I just attempted to create a new Travis job to provide testing coverage of Wily for MoveIt, but I see that the official Ubuntu Docker images [no longer provide an image for Wily](https://hub.docker.com/_/ubuntu/) and neither does the [ROS/OSRF images](https://github.com/osrf/docker_images/tree/bf5219b2ae079b65896232dd0c345a8bc75bc5df/ros/kinetic). How are we suppose to test MoveIt! on Wily if Wily is end of life and we have no Docker container to use? Why is ROS still supporting Wily anyway? This seems like a big waste of robotic developer resources since no one should be using this outdated OS. At the very least, allow us to release MoveIt! into Xenial but not Wily.

According to @tfoote "There's one or two changes we need to make to the buildfarm to support turning it off but we have not had time to make the upgrades."

Note this is a re-opening of a [previous discussion](https://github.com/ros-planning/moveit/issues/222) within MoveIt.
