Could you ask this question on answers.ros.org? That's the proper place for
Q&A type things and allows all questions and answers to be indexed and
easily searched by future users looking for help.

Please include some details as to what you are unsure about, e.g. is some
part of the laser_geometry package API docs unclear?
