[ros-users] [Discourse.ros.org] [OpenEmbedded] Superflore & Open Embedded

I've been working on getting [superflore](https://github.com/ros-infrastructure/superflore) to generate bitbake recipes for OpenEmbedded.

This will allow for automated installer generations for an entire ROS distribution (given that the dependencies exist).

Currently, you can see the experimental `lunar` generation on my fork of [meta-ros](https://github.com/allenh1/meta-ros).

There's a few issues at the moment, however. I can't seem to get the `cmake` directories to install in the image, nor can I get the `include` folder from ROS root to be present in the image.

I'm sure this is just a variable I failed to set, but all input is welcome!

Another question I'd like some feedback for is the location of different distributions. My current opinion is to put each ROS distro on its own branch, so as to avoid collision of recipes. If anybody has any other suggestions here, please let me know!

I'll post back with a `vcs`-importable repos file so you can try and replicate the image I've been working on easily.
