First - general comment.
I quite like an idea of changing PyOpenCL to work with PyPy.
Can I assume that this is just for PyOpenCL, and PyCUDA stays
Boost (and thus CPython) only for now?
Yep, I have no plans currently to port PyCUDA to cffi. If someone
decided to do that, I'd be supportive, but for now only PyOpenCL will
I do not know yet how packaging will look like for
that both supports CPython and PyPy - I'll need to check that.
To be safe, I think pyopencl-bpl and pyopencl-cffi should be two
different packages, perhaps with a virtual package for dependencies to
use. pyopencl-cffi works on both CPython and PyPy, so it'd be nice if
the package exposed that. The two packages should conflict with each
other because they both supply a module called "pyopencl".
As for testing in the wild - if I'm able to build
version I hope to be able to upload it to Debian experimental,
so interested Debian users could test it. I think that
some separate versioning for PyPy version will help here.
Great. PyPy's numpy isn't packaged yet, and PyPy 2.3 (which fixes a lot
of bugs, thus making all of this possible) is only a recent addition to
the Debian archive.
