This package contains Python bindings for the OpenCV (Open Computer Vision)
The Open Computer Vision Library is a collection of algorithms and sample
code for various computer vision problems. The library is compatible with
IPL (Intel's Image Processing Library) and, if available, can use IPP
(Intel's Integrated Performance Primitives) for better performance.
OpenCV provides low level portable data types and operators, and a set
of high level functionalities for video acquisition, image processing and
analysis, structural analysis, motion analysis and object tracking, object
recognition, camera calibration and 3D reconstruction.

* Merge from Debian unstable.  Remaining changes:
- In debian/rules don't build OpenGL on armhf; not useful there
* Dropped changes:
- re-enable precompiled headers on arm64.  According to the changelog
this was meant to have been done in version 2.4.9+dfsg-1ubuntu4 in
utopic, but we were still disabling them in debian/rules.
- opencv-data breaks libopencv-dev (<=; the
difference in versions no longer matters for upgrades from trusty
(unaffected) or precise (matches Debian breaks).
- drop buggy self build-dependency on libopencv-ml-dev.
- add libopencv-ocl-dev to libcv-dev depends: dropped, no rationale was
given for this divergence from Debian.
* Dropped changes, included in Debian:
- Build-depend on libtbb-dev on ppc64el.
- Rename library packages for g++5 ABI transition.

* Non-maintainer upload.
* Rename library packages for g++5 ABI transition.
Patch provided by Matthias Klose. (Closes: #791226)
* Remove Lintian overrides from Matthias' patch, current Lintian accepts
v5 package names as-is.
* Build-depend on the version of openexr that started its transition.
* Add patch to stop checking the version of sphinx-build (which makes
no difference anyway), fixing arch-indep build (#792715; not closing
that bug here because it is unclear whether it is considered to be a
sphinx bug).
* Deliberately not addressing #794856 in this upload, since it requires
repacking the orig.tar and is not a regression.
