[Discourse.ros.org] [OpenEmbedded] Looking for meta-ros Maintainers
unfortunately we do not have a tutorial or extensive instructions on that yet, but I am happy to guide you through this. In fact, I was thinking about providing melodic myself, but I am currently still working on getting a new version on kinetic ready. So, it is good that you want to address melodic.
I suggest the following approach:
0. checkout my "kinetic-experimental-v4-work-in-progress-v1" branch; that is a snapshot of the latest kinetic branch that I am still working on.
1. update the ROSDISTRO and a few more places from kinetic to melodic.
2. run update-recipes.py (with my preliminary script-improvement patches) to produce all recipe updates
3. run `bitbake core-image-ros-world` and fix all build issues.
