A couple of questions:
1) I'm looking to see when gazebo/turtlebot_simulator would be supported
by ROS 2. I saw that ROS 2 beta in dec will not have it.

2) I was looking at the gazebo_ros_pkgs and wasn't sure if this is a
migration to ROS 2
or something more. Could you please comment? I saw that in the plugins
directory that some of the functions aren't supported in ROS2 common
interfaces or have been redesigned e.g. dynamic reconfiguration, nodelet,

3) Is there a description of work effort for the support and if anyone else
is interested (potential collaboration)?

4) In ROS 2 the turtlebot demo supports only astra's camera and inorder to
support asus camera.
Should the same be used; Astra driver: we forked and ported the existing
ROS 1 package (there's no roscpp-independent package separation).?
