For "core" ROS 2 repositories (rclcpp, rclpy, etc), we have a separate repository using the master branch for the most part.  This makes sense since these repositories share no code with their ROS 1 counterparts.

Early on in the porting of some of the non-core repositories ([pcl_conversions](https://github.com/ros2/pcl_conversions), [depthimage_to_laserscan](https://github.com/ros2/depthimage_to_laserscan/)), we forked the repositories into the `ros2` organization and did the ports there.  But creating separate repositories means it is harder to port changes across, so our recommendation for new ports has been to make a `ros2` branch on the upstream repository and do the port there.

We'd like to get to a place where you can host both the ROS 1 and ROS 2 ports of the code on the same branch, but I don't think we have the documentation and/or pieces in place to do this quite yet.  If someone is willing to work on this, though, it would be a great thing for the community to have.
