do you think that its necessary to brief a summary to the current focus and high priority (maybe design change / technical direction or decisions) of a component ?  the change is dynamic and maybe its hard to clarify everything and requires some discussion, but these kind of information is valuable.

I am sorry, but I dont understand the question. Can you maybe elaborate on this a bit more?

Now ROS has 2 trunks, one is ROS and the other is ROS2, and each has many different components. maybe the ROS2 will be ultimately the final in the future. 
For ROS2, there're new feature development or component porting from ROS, so..is it possible to summarize some information regarding what the current focus or priority for a component ? maybe it's long to elaborate every details for a component, and that's waste of time, so the short key message with key points is enough for the newcomers get the status of a component, for example:
1. the key features to develop
2. the key blocker to use that component in ROS2,
3. the totally technical redesign info from ROS
4. the next direction if the above info is undetermined 
and so on...
For a specific instance here, ROS2 navigation, maybe it's really hard to know what's going on in ROS2 for most community users.

Based on the easy to make clear the status of a component, it helps the efficiency for ROS users to employ it or get hands dirty to further contribute it in the same page while ROS community gets larger and larger :slight_smile:
