An additional aspect of releasing an updated libceres into Indigo is that I'm not entirely sure what packages are dependent on the libceres released into Indigo. I know our robot_calibration package is (and is released to debs), I think SWRI also has a package under ros-industrial, but I don't think it is released into debs. It seems pretty late in the game to upgrade Indigo to 1.11 (there are at least 10 backwards incompatibility notes for 1.09, 1.10) (as an added difficulty, we no longer have support to build PPAs on Saucy, so we would end up with two different libceres, although AFAIK the saucy deb was not actually building for robot_calibration anyways due to a difference in the underlying packages).

I would be all in favor of pulling a working version of libceres into Kinetic, since it appears that Ubuntu folks have no interest in actually fixing their version of libceres in Xenial. This is currently a blocker for us getting actual robots onto Xenial/Kinetic
