We generally map it to a single stack, though sometimes it hosts a
family of related stacks (e.g. foo, foo_tutorials, foo_visualization).
 Stacks are generally a way of organizing stuff to release together,
so it's not really the stack, per se, that guides the boundaries.

A good rule of thumb is a single community of developers.  One of the
reasons why we are moving away from the big 'ros-pkg' sized
repositories is that it's harder, for example, to manage access
control to a repository that hosts multiple intersecting communities.
