Dear Tus,

I would like to add pyopencl [1] to [community]. I maintain this package in 
AUR and it has 14 votes. 

Pyopencl depends, among other, on libcl (OpenCL library, provided by either 
nvidia-utils or amdstream [2]) and a package that provides OpenCL C/C++ 

Here is my plan :

* Add pyopencl to [community] (I will use a better name, something like 
* Tidy up and add opencl-headers [3] (66 votes) to [community] [4].
* Leave amdstream in AUR

The opencl-headers package provides headers from the Khronos group. It could 
also be possible to use a different source to get *exactly* the same headers 
(Nvidia for example).

Any comment or objections in adding these packages to the [community]

[4] I contacted hsyl20 (maintainer of opencl-headers). He has no objection if 
I take his package.
