DataDrake moved this task from Backlog to Accepted For Inclusion on the Package Requests board.

The current version of pymc3 uses theano as the backend which would also need to be included in the repo. However, the development of Theano is officially stopped. I think it is better to wait for the next release of pymc to package it since it will use tensorflow as the backend.
