Adding multi ROS distribution support


Recommended Posts

Hi to all,

i am using Funtoo together with ROS (Robotic Operation Systems).

In ROS there are many distributions and each one is considered closed for it self.

In Funtoo there is only one version available, the Melodic, which is only shortly got the status "Recommended".

There exists a ros-overlay, which generate its ebuilds. From my experience it works pretty well, but it is a complete solution. I was facing missing dependencies problem as well.


Would it be conceivable to create a ROS kit and to place there all the different ROS distributions?

I would be more then happy to do it my self, but I would like to know in advance that is idea fits the Funtoo why of thinking.


What do you think?
