  Description     : A matlab-like environment for state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms.

Torch5 provides a Matlab-like environment for state-of-the-art machine
learning algorithms. It is easy to use and provides a very efficient
implementation, thanks to an easy and fast scripting language (Lua) and
a underlying C implementation.

[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Packaging stalled (for about a year now) due to:

- unclear how to not duplicate lua / properly integrate things within
debian - according to the lua packaging guidelines (torch5 requires lua
to be compiled with a C++ to be able to through exceptions to its QT
GUI)
- there seems no easy way to resolve this (according to upstream and the
debian lua maintainers)
- no upstream versions for a long time

Anyway packaging was basically done back then, packaging files are here

Subject: lua-torch5: changing back from ITP to RFP

retitle 490204 RFP: lua-torch5 -- A matlab-like environment for state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms.

thanks

Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of lua-torch5 back from ITP
(Intent to Package) to RFP (Request for Package), because this bug hasn't seen
any activity during the last 6 months.

If you are still interested in adopting lua-torch5, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

 retitle 490204 ITP: lua-torch5 -- A matlab-like environment for state-of-the-art machine learning algorithms.
 owner 490204 !
 thanks

However, it is not recommended to keep ITP for a long time without acting on
the package, as it might cause other prospective maintainers to refrain from
packaging that software. It is also a good idea to document your progress on
this ITP from time to time, by mailing <490204@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,
--
