Bug#676504: ITP: pocl -- Portable OpenCL

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Vincent Danjean <vdanjean@debian.org>

* Package name    : pocl
  Version         : 0.6
  Upstream Author : Carlos Sánchez de La Lama and others
* URL             : https://launchpad.net/pocl
* License         : Some kind of BSD
  Programming Lang: C/llvm
  Description     : Portable OpenCL

Portable OpenCL is an open source implementation of the OpenCL standard which
can be easily adapted for new targets. One of the goals of the project is
improving performance portability of OpenCL programs, avoiding the need for
target-dependent manual optimizations. A "native" target is included, which
allows running OpenCL kernels on the host (CPU).

This would allow to have a free implementation in Debian so that OpenCL
programs can be packaged. Other well-known implementations (AMD, NVidia, Intel)
are non-free.
