Hi all,

Thanks for your replies.

Actually I use Yocto Project for my developments (on my spare time) but I
found it a little bit time consuming (although there is a good ROS Layer)
so I'd like to try with Debian on my SBCs.

A friend of mine, Debian Maintainer, suggested me to try to port ROS to
Debian and maybe He could help me during the process as I never did it
before, so I've started reading about Debian policies (BTW, I am Debian
user 13 years ago but I never contributed with the Community), so I think I
am going to keep reading documentation about the topic and then maybe I
could join to the group porting ROS and help :)
