I will let the students respond to this but from an old-linux-dude standpoint, what I'd REALLY like to see is a simplified startup process that is basically a "FRC Teams using non-traditional stuff please put your startup scripts here"-Folder. Where each script is a name like 0-startMeFirst.sh, 1-startMeSecond.sh, 2-startMeThird.sh. And then those are all executed in the appropriate order with each returning a success/failure. This is similar to how init worked and granted, systemd has replaced it so maybe systemd is an option. Basically, I'd like the roboRIO to behave more like the linux system that it is(n't).

I remember you contacting us a couple times early this season and getting an email forwarded from Omar I think. As I recall, you were using the ROS for LabVIEW implementation from Tufts. We have moved 100% away from LabVIEW at this point as we also found it a hindrance to making ROS behave like ROS. Hopefully our paper helps you out with getting it working down the road.
