>From what Ive seen, currently actions lack two useful features: the possibility of using them with nodes composition and some simplified APIs, similar to the `simple_action_server` and `simple_action_client` of ROS1.

Do you know if someone is working on these items?


Not that I know of, but I know there are some strong feelings about such things. I for one would rather see the API well-documented along with some simple tutorials covering common cases as opposed to seeing those classes come back. I've seen them cause a lot of confusion (e.g. those hidden threads bite a lot of folks).
