[ros-users] nodelet_core dependency in stack.xml

Hi Ivan,

In general we maintain separate branches for development for each distro.
Thus you would fork for development of new features, and backport
patches/bug fixes.  It's a little bit of overhead.

For backwards compatability we have kept an artificial dependency from
common on nodelet_core which will allow you to just depend on common for
Electric.  However that will be removed in Fuerte.  Thus for electric you
can keep the dependency on common.  However soon we will move forward with
removing the backwards compatibility in unstable at which time you will need
to fork development.
