Meeting agenda


Package status change mark change manifest)

  • /!\ Action items that need to be taken.

  • {X} Major issues that need to be resolved

  • add -R with current semantics
  • replace current -r/-k with best effort
  • confirm "MAKE" is the default for overrideing "make"
  • make sure there's an env flag for threads ROS_MAKE_THREADS
  • if user specifies it take integer, and override environment
  • ticket for future: adding rosmake.rc or default arguments environment variable to have default flags for rosmake
  • change default to not call rosdep if it cannot be fast enough to not annoy people(josh)
  • add whitelist and whitelist recursive options
