If you are going to do a manual upload, you should drop the -dbg
packages (in favor of autogenerated -dbgsyms ones)

I plan to backport nvidia-cuda-toolkit 6.5 for jessie-backports once
driver 352 and the newer 6.5 reach testing. Would it be useful to have
pycuda backports as well?


PS: don't forget, 7.0 drops i386 support
