Just as a follow up to this, we've had a lot of collisions on bloom
generated pull requests on https://github.com/ros/rosdistro.

I've just pushed a new version of bloom (0.5.20) which should hopefully
address this issue. So if you're doing releases for Jade, please make sure
to update bloom first.

> Hello everyone!
> I want to give an update on the next release of ROS, a.k.a ROS Jade, and
> let you know how you can help. We're preparing for the Beta to be announced
> between now and the end of the month.
> What does beta mean? It means that we have released a version of all of
> the packages we need for a release. The practical implication is that
> anyone can install ros-jade-desktop-full from apt-get and try it out. But
> we're not quite there yet, and that's where you come in. I've put together
> a page which lists the packages that are directly or indirectly a
> dependency of desktop-full:
> http://wiki.ros.org/jade/Planning/Maintenance
> Please have a look at this page and see if you're responsible for any of
> the packages or repositories that are unreleased, and therefore blocking,
> and try to get a release done as soon as you are able. If you need help
> please contact the ros-release at lists.ros.org mailing list and ask for
> help.
> If you'd like to help in another way, please take a moment and look at the
> Jade specific wiki pages and add to them if you think it is necessary:
> - http://wiki.ros.org/jade/Planning#sigs_active_in_Jade
> - http://wiki.ros.org/jade/Migration
> - http://wiki.ros.org/jade/Installation
> I've also copied over the installation instructions from indigo to jade,
> so please have a look at those and look for typos and copy-paste errors.
> Thanks in advance for everyone's help in getting us to an on-time jade
> beta.
