Announcing rosinstall_generator

From Dirk Thomas on ros-users@ 

I am pleased to announce rosinstall_generator!

The rosinstall_generator generates rosinstall files containing information about repositories with ROS packages/stacks.
It always points to released packages - either to the gbp repositories for wet packages or to the tarball of dry stacks from the SVN release repository.
(If you want to access the source repository of a package/stack you should use roslocate instead.)

It replaces the hosted web service at which has been deprecated.
I have updated the from-source installation instructions at to use this new tool instead of the web service.

You can find more information and examples on the ROS wiki page:
