I have no idea what reverse dependency I was working on when packaging
dlpack, but now there is no package depending on it:
$ build-rdep libdlpack-dev
Please simply go ahead.

Then python binding should be available for the first upload if
possible, because the introductory documentation of tvm is using
python. That's also where we start if we want to run sanity test
I suggest the bindings for other languages be postponed. C/C++
plus python is enough for first upload.

for c and c++ part the upstream unit test is enough
for python part there should be pytest. (did not look into code)
if we want to do more tests manually, we can copy the starter
but I have seen some version requirement on onnx. Our onnx needs
to be updated as well. Onnx version bump may affect pytorch.
