# ROS meta-package ros-melodic-desktop-full doesn't include mav packages

Why doesn't the installation of the meta-package ros-melodic-desktop-full on Ubuntu 18.04 Melodic include the packages ros-melodic-mav-msgs, ros-melodic-mav-msgs and ros-melodic-mav-planning-msgs?

• Why should it? desktop-full is a collection of what most users need and you have to make a cutoff somewhere. Jun 17 '19 at 7:56
• I see. Shall I remove this question, then? Jun 17 '19 at 11:03
• No. Maybe someone who decided what to include has a real answer. (Would be interesting to know how this was decided.) Jun 17 '19 at 11:37

The melodic desktop-full metapackages is defined in REP 150 with several of the other core metapackages.
