Re: Bug#823140: RFS: caffe/1.0.0~rc3-1 -- a deep learning framework [ITP]
Some updates to the caffe package:
(can be seen in git repo but no mentors upload)
1. added octave-caffe-cpu package, but there remains some
lintian errors to be solved.
2. changed package caffe-cpu into metapackage, move tools
to package caffe-tools-cpu. the metapackage pulls
libcaffe-cpu, caffe-tools-cpu and python-caffe-cpu,
and it suggests the octave interface, libdevel pkg and
the doxygen doc package.
Concerning protobuf3 and opencv3:
opencv3 is not a must, but python3-protobuf is needed.
Some weeks ago I had a quick study on them and I found that
they are not as easy to be dealt with as I hoped.
* even failed to build the unchanged opencv3 package from
* protobuf3 compilation needs gmock but it's missing.
need to inspect the packaging on how the missing gmock
source was resolved by protobuf maintainers.
Without python3-protobuf the python3-caffe-cpu still builds,
although it doesn't runs correctly... Can we first get it into
experimental to see on which Architecture does it FTBFS? 
Besides in this way we can let it pass the first-time-new-queue
when waiting for the required runtime-dep.
Is experimental available for this purpose?
 amd64 and ppc64el won't FTBFS, both tested by myself,
and that's all I know.
