Hi Tully,

Are there any plans to integrate the changes to PCL upstream instead of 
maintaining a wg fork?  From my analysis, the only changes are that the 
wg fork includes the generated message headers, .msg files, and some ROS 
stack metadata.  I opened a bug upstream[1] and was going to take a 
crack this weekend at having PCL's buildsystem handle generating the 
message headers and installing the stack files when USE_ROS is enabled, 
but if someone else is working on it I'd rather not duplicate the effort.
