I'm trying to spawn the youbot model by WPI-RAIL in Gazebo 1.9 using ROS Groovy on Ubuntu 12.04.

After compiling the xacro files using

rosrun xacro youbot.urdf.xacro > youbot.urdf

I try to spawn the model using

rosrun gazebo_ros spawn_model -file `rospack find youbot_description`/robots/youbot.urdf -urdf -x 0 -y 0 -z 1 -model youbot-test

and even though the model is actually shown inside Gazebo, I get a few of these errors in the terminal where gazebo is in execution

Error [] Invalid collada file. Must be version 1.4.0 or 1.4.1

Looking at the meshes in the project, I found out that some of the meshes for the arm are actually version 1.5.

Is this compromising the full spawn of the robot simulation? Is there a way to allow both 1.4 and 1.5 Collada files in the same project?

If the mesh looks complete then there is nothing to worry about. That message exists primarily for older versions of collada. I'll update the message.
