Regarding Kinetic: Debian Jessie still doesnt have a ceres-solver back-port and contributions in that direction are very welcomed.

This would be great to have. Attempting to backport onto Jessie runs into unresolved dependencies. If someone has time to look into these dependency versions as see which ones can be relaxed to support a backport to Jessie that would be great. But it's quite possible that the requirements don't match on Jessie for either 1.11 or 1.12 which would explain why it's not already bundled.

In particular Jessie has libsuitesparse 4.2.1-3 but the yakkety version requires 4.4.3 or higher.
And wily has the same version as jessie.

As an example here's where the backporting stops when attempting to run for Jessie.
