This page describes how to prepare a repository for release on the public ROS 2 buildfarm. After you’ve created a package, this is the next step towards getting your package in to the publicly-available Debian packages (i.e., you will be able to install the package via
apt). This page includes the ROS 2-specific instructions to execute before following the Bloom release tutorial on the ROS Wiki.

Differences from ROS 1 Bloom¶
If you’ve bloomed packages before in ROS 1, ROS 2’s requirements will look familiar.
ROS 2 uses a forked rosdistro index located at https://github.com/ros2/rosdistro.
You can configure bloom to use it by setting the
ROSDISTRO_INDEX_URL environment variable.
If you’re using a version of bloom older than 0.6.8 you’ll need to use the v3 index url for releasing into Bouncy.
