half a year ago there was one person who came to #radeon on Freenode

ppc64 (I have no information whether the bugs have been addressed
since, but I would presume they have). Would it be possible to
provide ppc64 package for PyOpenCL as well?
In theory it's possible.
But according to Debian Policy 2.2.1 package must not require software
not present in Debian for execution.
Currently there is no OpenCL ICD for ppc64 in Debian - so I cannot
upload PyOpenCL for that architecture.
It would be much easier to just build PyOpenCL for all architectures,
but to be following Policy I need to manually maintain list of
architectures for which we have ICDs.
