initial version

There is a pre-built conda package available via

conda install -c opencv

It does want to downgrade numpy to version 1.7.1 from the current (as I type this) version 1.8.2 so I first cloned my ipython2 environment:

conda create -n opencv --clone ip2

Then I activated the opencv environment before doing the install above. There is also a conda install recipe at which looks reasonable and would probably allow someone to build opencv against the most current numpy version but I didn't try using it. There is also a discussion thread at with instructions that look like they should work but, again, I didn't try them in preference to the simple "conda install" above.
