kwc: As with any messages-related review, it's pretty gory. I've proposed and ticketed new manipulation, nav, and visualization message packages to offload some of the messages. I've also proposed to reinstate an experimental_msgs package to contain some future robot_msgs that are not ready for release yet. Of the remaining messages, about half I marked as 'ok' under my own intuition and half I'm still unsure about. robot_msgs has a tricky inclusion criteria that we should perhaps debate, but my general notion was:

As prcore will necessarily need to be our most stable stack, it is important that robot_msgs not be a source of instability.

Naming Issue?:

Messages that depend on deprecated_msgs:

ok for inclusion, though must be reviewed:
