As we warned when we released Box Turtle, the wg-ros-pkg/all external
is no longer being supported. It is ill-defined now that we are doing
regular distributions, each with their own sets of stacks.

If you wish to still use SVN externals with a single URL, you can use
the automatically updated externals here:


There are sets of URLs for each distribution, as well as sub-urls for
each variant within the distribution. These URLs are very similar to
the debian metapackages that we build for each distribution.

For example,


would checkout all of the released boxturtle stacks, whereas


would only checkout the boxturtle stacks in the 'base' variant, and


would checkout all of the stacks in the pr2 variant, which includes
the base variant.
