Hi Mike,

There's many packages blocking desktop and desktop_full. We're working on
setting up a dashboard for what is required for the metapackages. We will
announce it soon. The other issue blocking the release of the metapackages
repo is that we need to review the definitions of the metapackages.

Gazebo specifically has transitioned to being an upstream dependency on a
path toward being submitted to Ubuntu/Debian so there will be one version
released for each distro. (Usually the latest stable release) And it will
stick to the required ABI compatibility for that release cycle.  As it is
not yet available upstream we are importing it into the ROS repositories as
if it came from upstream. The gazebo_ros_pkgs is yet to be released I
expect it to be coming out soon.

To you question of what version saucy and trusty both have the gazebo2
builds, so Indigo will be exclusively gazebo2. For a summary of all
3rdparty packages which we depend upon we are tracking them here:
https://github.com/ros/rosdistro/issues/2421  The only outstanding package
is colladadom on Trusty.
