When we started work on ROS, like most young open source projects, our
greatest need was to recruit early adopters and fellow developers.  So
we targeted that audience: we built a wiki, filled it with
documentation, tutorials, and code examples, and made the wiki the
landing page at www.ros.org.

Well, times have changed.  Now, six years into the project, we have a
broader audience to consider. We want to reach teachers who are
considering using ROS in their classrooms, managers who want to use
ROS in a new product, journalists who are writing stories about ROS,
and many, many others.

So, in celebration (just a bit late) of ROS's sixth birthday, we're
pleased to present a new http://www.ros.org.

After all, a grown-up ROS deserves a grown-up website.  Don't worry:
the wiki is still there [1], as are all the other ROS sites on which
we depend.

Btw, like most things we do, the website itself is at GitHub [2].  If
you run into a problem or have an idea for improving the site, open an
issue [3] and we'll have a look.
