I'm happy to share that Acutronic Robotics will be supporting the MoveIt! transition to ROS 2.0. 

During the following weeks, we'll formally allocate resources to commit our developer's time and start porting MoveIt! to ROS 2.0. While we don't promise we'll port the complete MoveIt! framework, we hope to contribute with the community and put together the first stones to have some basic form of native MoveIt! support in ROS 2.0.

For those that care, our contributions are justified by our current work in modularity and will be funded to ensure that our [MARA modular robot](https://acutronicrobotics.com/products/mara/), based in ROS 2.0, can interface with the motion planning framework natively. Currently, we're in conversations with PickNick to ensure our efforts contribute in the most productive way with the community. Input on this regard is more than welcome. 

We hope and invite other manufacturers to contribute in a similar manner.
