I have been working my way through your excellent install instructions. At TensorFlow ./configure there is an extra question that is not documented

Do you wish to build TensorFlow with Google Cloud Platform support? [y/N] N

I was not sure so I answered N. Currently the compile is underway with no issues yet. Can you explain the cloud platform support configuration option.
My aim is to install magenta and possibly music21 and do some learning about the various capabilities. Running this on a RPI3 with latest Jessie so no real issues so far. I originally tried it using Jessie Lite but had quite a few problems so decided to use the full Jessie and so far your instructions work perfectly.

Thanks Claude

Oh, good catch! In general, "No" is the correct response for typical builds. Recently, Google released a limited preview of it's machine learning service on the Google Cloud Platform, which uses TensorFlow as the computation engine. Building with Google Cloud Support enables certain APIs to be included, but since it's only available to those who are admitted into the limited preview, it's not necessary for most people.

I'll add instructions about this to the guide to address this issue. Thanks for bringing it up!
