I was under the impression that when using git, rosinstall requires
one stack per git repository, and that hg didn't have this limitation.
Since it's currently easier for us to manage all our stacks in a
single repo, we figured it'd be best to provide an hg mirror so that
each stack is individually rosinstall-able (I'm not even sure that
this works though).

The duplicates are in old directories that are probably not even
relevant any more, eg:
. But what we'd like is for the wiki page for each package/stack to
point to the new repository. I don't know how you handle such package
duplication in the indexing process.
