pull request, providing any questions, improvements and suggestions that
occur to you:


Even if you are not a catkin expert, your feedback is valuable. Please tell

changes make sense.

specification. The two are similar, but REP-0140 is a compete specification
of the new format. Here are the differences between them:


Both will remain in effect concurrently. The new format fixes some
problems revealed by experience with the REP-0127 version. Eventually,
REP-0127 will be deprecated, and all packages will be encouraged to adopt
