Special Interest Group (SIG)

SIG mailing lists have been deprecated in favor of Discourse Categories: Please read http://discourse.ros.org/t/ros-sig-migration-method/35

ROS consists of many different parts - from core and low-level parts such as build system, networking and drivers to higher level applications, such as navigation and manipulation. Each release of ROS contains improvements in one or more of these areas.

SIGs have been introduced to guide the development process for each release, but have quickly outgrown their original purpose and are now developer groups focusing on specific areas. However, they are still playing an important role in the release process.

If you want to know more about the current development in a specific area or want to contribute in the development, do not hesitate to join an existing SIG or create a new one, if you find your topic or area missing.

SIG Processes

Contribution to ROS releases

Once your SIG is ready to contribute to a ROS release, link your SIG to the active planning cycle e.g. hydro/Planning#SIGs.
