It already says the Robonaut 2 is only supposed to be used on the interior of the ISS.
Only to begin with.
The Repair robot that I am referring to is supposed to be mounted on the girder system and use The or a version of The Canadian robotic arm.
I think your referring to a pair of fine manipulators that were/are useable at the end of the main arm and would also be able to travel along the truss system. Not sure if that ever got implemented, but it does bring up the question of when do you start referring to something as a "robot".
