The dynamic_reconfigure package
(http://www.ros.org/wiki/dynamic_reconfigure) has become an essential
part of many ROS systems.  It allows you to do great things via
on-the-fly configuration of parameters, and is widely used in drivers
and perception systems, and was recently added to the navigation

But dynamic_reconfigure is currently orphaned.  The original author
moved on to other things, and while various people have pitched in
with tweaks here and there, we really need somebody to take ownership
of this important library.  Ownership would mean at least applying
patches and overseeing releases, but could of course include doing new

Any volunteers to take on the maintainer role for dynamic_reconfigure?
 Maybe you use dynamic_reconfigure a lot and have ideas for where to
take it in the future?  And while you'd primarily be motivated by the
sense of accomplishment and inner peace that comes from contributing,
we'll also send you cool ROS schwag...
