I ran into some trouble while attempting a ros installation of groovy via Homebrew. When trying to execute the following command:

rosdep install --from-paths src --ignore-src --rosdistro groovy -y

I continue seeing this issue:

ERROR: the following packages/stacks could not have their rosdep keys resolved to system dependencies: rosgraph: No definition of [python-netifaces] for OS [osx]

I'm not sure how to proceed here.

I submitted a pull request on github to address the issue:


As the error states, there was no definition in the homebrew yaml file for python-netifaces. A new definition has been added called 'python-netifaces', which points to the netifaces pip.
