  1. ROS 1 via ROS 2 bridge, is it something that we want to keep supporting? (Benja)

  2. MAVROS supports ROS 2. But by reading the docs the first impression is

    • MAVROS → ROS 1
    • XRCE-DDS → ROS 2

    How to clarify everything? (Benja)

  3. microRTPS for v1.13, does it make sense to update it to be supported in ROS 2 Humble? (Benja)
