Hi doko,

FYI CUDA 7.0.28-1 is currently queued in NEW.


I plan to help updating cuda to 7.5 immediately after uploaded
CUDA 7.0, because in my former simple cuda compiler tests,
CUDA 7.0 still doesn't work well with GCC-5. 
(not working with gcc >> 4.10)
CUDA 7.5 unblocks one of my ITP BUG and resolves its FTBFS.

In a word I want to get CUDA 7.5 into Debian as soon as possible.
So doko, if your work on GCC depends on a specific CUDA version
(e.g. 7.0.*), please consider waiting for CUDA 7.5 .

I think we'd better have a discussion with anbe,
because I'm not familiar with nvidia packages upload schedule.

To anbe:

How do you think about this? 
Is it possible to bump CUDA version so fast?

It seems that the nvidia driver blocks CUDA as its dependency,
but, well, I can also offer help on corresponding packages if in need.

Thank you all :-)
