Hello Vince:

I've created a [tracker issue in gazebo_ros_pkgs](https://github.com/ros-simulation/gazebo_ros_pkgs/issues/512) to follow the information about the port of `gazebo_ros_pkgs` to ROS 2.0. Some answers inline here:

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.

I think that `gazebo_ros_pkgs` is not consider as a core part of ROS 2.0 so I won't expect to see it in the early stages of the Roadmap. [quote="vdiluoffo, post:1, topic:830"]
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 pluginsdirectory that some of the functions aren't supported in ROS2 common interfaces or have been redesigned e.g. dynamic reconfiguration, nodelet, etc

If you have checked the current [gazebo_ros_pkgs repository](https://github.com/ros-simulation/gazebo_ros_pkgs), there is nothing related to ROS 2.0 in there, just ROS 1.0.

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

I'm not aware of any at this point but sounds like a very interesting first work that can be done right now.
