Are you planning to get nvidia-cuda-toolkit 6.0/6.5 into jessie? Keep
in mind that the freeze for Debian jessie is in early November IIRC,
so that's a fairly tight schedule, especially if you're going to try
for 6.5 and end up being delayed by NEW. Just something to keep in
mind. :)

I meant mergechanges earlier, sorry.
