I don't know the use cases you may be finding for _sudo_ to be needed. Could you give a few examples? It may be easier to reason and maybe create these best practices.

The only reference to best practices I found is here: https://github.com/leggedrobotics/ros_best_practices/wiki#using-third-party-libraries (linked from http://wiki.ros.org/BestPractices)

> * Dont use sudo in wrapper packages.

> * Dont require manual system wide installations.
