Dear Release Team
Please consider a freeze exception for a new upstream release of
Version 10.1 adds support for GCC 8 and Clang 7. This will allow us
to drop gcc-7 from buster, as the only other packages needing gcc-7
are starpu and starpu-contrib (#924012) which will follow CUDA.
nvidia-cuda-toolkit is non-free and the build consists of unpacking
the pre-built binaries from upstream and repacking them into several
separate binary packages for Debian. At this stage, 10.0 is in
experimental, and I still need to prepare the packaging for 10.1 and
have it go through NEW.
For what it is worth, Ubuntu completed the transition to 10.0 two
weeks ago, and I intend to test and complete the 10.1 transition there
as well before finally asking for an unblock for buster.
