Since you are getting rid of manifest.xml we would like to reiterate and
formalize support for extending the export statement. We have been
working on extending manifest.xml to support exporting URDF files and
Some hardware we are developing has launch files that should be started
at bootup. To make this user friendly we would like to make a launch
manager gui, packages could then export launch files that they would
like to offer the user to start at bootup
For some reason it looks like both of these use cases currently work and
we would like to maintain and formalize support for this.
Also, this approach may work well for the appmanager to locate .app
files provided by various packages.
