TensorFlow has question about google cloud platform support #19
I have been working my way through your excellent install instructions. At TensorFlow ./configure there is an extra question that is not documented
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.
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!
