The new tag-based search is really great.

I noticed there is no link to a Universal Robot ROS package like https://github.com/ros-industrial/universal_robot or https://github.com/ThomasTimm/ur_modern_driver

Are these drivers considered unstable/experimental and therefore not listed?

I'm glad you like it.

In our porting process we skipped any listing that had fewer than 3 sentences on their wiki page. As the Universal Robot page had a [broken link](http://wiki.ros.org/Robots/universal_robot) to a non-existant Portal page in the old Robots page so it was skipped when we ported. A contribution for that would be great.

Yaskawa Motoman drivers, e.g. http://wiki.ros.org/motoman_driver (https://github.com/ros-industrial/motoman) seem also to be missing.

Likewise this had a [broken link](http://wiki.ros.org/Robots/motoman) listed so it was skipped. A contribution for this would also be great.

When adding the robots to robots.ros.org it's also recommended that a standard developer entry point be added at `http://wiki.ros.org/Robots/<RobotName>` In this location for things like the Univeral Robot there could be references to the two different available drivers etc.
