I am sending one email to two groups - just call me lazy ;-)
Yesterday python-pycuda got accepted into Debian unstable,
and today it landed in archives.
This means that Debian unstable contains PyCUDA 2011.1.3 with
git patches from 2011-08-13 (smem_alloc_granularity) and
from 2011-08-14 (fix of debug code leak) is available in Debian
unstable. Package should migrate into testing (and thus
become candidate for inclusion into next stable Debian)
after two weeks if there are no problems with it.
At the same time both Debian unstable and Debian testing
both contain PyOpenCL 2011.1.2 with changes from git
up to 2011-07-16. After 2011.2 is released I intend to
upload it into Debian.
Unfortunately Ubuntu still contains PyOpenCL 0.92.
Automatic upload of Debian version into Ubuntu did
not worked, probably because of bug
which forces users to install NVIDIA drivers even
if they use another OpenCL provider. Debian version
contains fix (at least I hope that it fixes this problem)
but I got no reply to my message asking whether problem
is fixed or not.
As for PyCUDA in Ubuntu, it does not look like it will
be included soon. Ubuntu has different driver architecture,
and does not contain NVIDIA CUDA toolkit, and both are heavily
used by python-pycuda.
