Re: [Pkg-opencl-devel] ROCm RFP

Blame it on my poor knowledge of Debian, and the siloed internal search engine... I started today looking seriously into packaging ROCm, and after 8 hours discovered that there is a dedicated team, slightly hidden under the debian-ai mailing list : https://salsa.debian.org/rocm-team .

The team have at least pushed one component of ROCm into stable already :
https://packages.debian.org/source/stable/roct-thunk-interface. (old version, 3.7, current is 4.5, 5 announced)

A conversation between an AMD engineer and the Debian ROCm team started here : https://lists.debian.org/debian-ai/2021/03/msg00009.html

Would it be useful to place these packages under the umbrella of
  Maintainer: Debian OpenCL Maintainers <pkg-opencl-devel@lists.alioth.debian.org> There is more in ROCm than just OpenCL, but I don't know a better fitting team ...

I have no clue how this could be better setup, between teams that deal with very similar issues.

There was no RFP nor ITP for the overall rocm, there is one now.
Guess I will play catch up, and see if I can help!

BR, Maxime
