I just wanted to second Nick's thanks and congrats to the ROS
developers.  Several students in our lab have gotten the Kinect to
work with ROS relatively easily, and ROS in general has greatly
enhanced our work.

With all of the problems, questions, (mostly constructive) complaints
that show up on ros-users, it is great to remind the community of the
exceptional and devoted contributions made by the ROS developers.
This is both in developing ROS and taking the time to answer questions
to the list, sometimes the same questions over and over and over ;)

I had been putting off some of my kinect related projects until things
started to settle down with diamondback.

Now that diamonback beta is released, I figured I'd finally give it a try.

After a few initial hiccups with the "common" stack, "rosmake kinect"
went off without a hitch! This included building lots of things, like
PCL among others.

I'm excited to start playing around with this this weekend, and I
wanted to say thanks and congrats to the ros developers that made it
happen =) Without your tireless efforts, and amenability to bug
reports, it would never have happened.

Thanks again.
