currently, Dmitriy Rozhkov from Intel and me are actively maintaining the meta-ros
layer, but for sure, further helping hands for maintaining are welcome.

Perfect, I'll build a complete image and check if I can fix some of the open issues and warnings.

As advanced OpenEmbedded/Yocto user, I assume you know the difficulty of
maintaining an application layer while the upstream development in OpenEmbedded-Core
and the meta-oe layer move forward.
Certainly, I foresee that you, with your experience, can also provide some good input
to make catkin and meta-ros recipes build on the image, and support yocto's SDK
In the past I've concentrated on the latest release branch of Yocto. At work we do continues intergration, so this is maybe an option to keep track of the master branches. 

Related to catkin, yes this is indeed a topic I am interested in. Providing the users to cross compile with the Yocto project or compiling on the target is a must have.

To make sure that your maintenance work is also profitable for your goals,
I would propose to start with merging the O3D3xx recipes into the main-line meta-ros
repository. Just open a pull request and we will review and test your
proposed recipes.

Related to the O3D3xx recipes, I was thinking to provide an extra layer, but some of the dependencies like PCL are not available in meta-oe at the moment. I'll create a pull-request when back home.

You will find all open tasks in the github issue tracker. Feel free to comment on
topics that you would like to take over, either by doing or by instructing others,
that are already involved in the effort of the specific tasks.
