Is there a plan for vcstool to be an official successor to wstool?


No, there is no plan to do so. The existing solution using `wstool` works perfectly fine and changing all documentation referencing it is a significant effort.

Both tools can be used for the task and it is mostly a personal preference which one you choose.

The ROS 2 instructions all use `vcstool` just because they have been written after `vcstool` was created (which is already six years ago).
