@tkruse Thank you for the headsup. Indeed I was it looks like. I'll continue there if I want to.

Successor to `wstool` is [vcstool](https://github.com/dirk-thomas/vcstool), which completely decouples downloading repositories from workspace management. Part of the rationale would seem to be exactly the points you raise.


I was not aware of `vcstool`. Thank you!

Is there a plan for vcstool to be an official "successor" to wstool? I can't find any announcement for vcstool yet with regard to wstool. Tutorials still use wstool AFAICT (e.g. http://wiki.ros.org/catkin/Tutorials/workspace_overlaying).
