Hi,

This is an automatic email to change the status of pybrain 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 pybrain, please send a mail to
<control@bugs.debian.org> with:

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 <587069@bugs.debian.org>.

Thank you for your interest in Debian,

Hello Christian,
Can I help you for pybrain? Otherwise, do you have an ETA for the package?
I would like to see pybrain in Debian.

Kind regards,

the single remaining blocker is still the incompatibility with the
Python interface LIBSVM, Version 2.9 and higher.

I offered some compatibility patches upstream [0] which restore the
original functionality, but it's mostly just a hack, and I recommended
against having them included. Rather, upstream (or somebody else with
more knowledge of pybrain's internals) should rework the
pybrain<->LIBSVM bridge to accomodate for the LIBSVM 2.9+ changes.

Upstream was very cooperative in the past, they just had a manpower
problem (at that time, at least). If you're willing to take a shot at
it, you might be able to help them out with either proper use of LIBSVM,
or a switch to scikits-learn (see [0] again).

Either way, [1] should contain a fairly complete packaging. I haven't
updated it in a while, but as I recall everything was fine, except for
the LIBSVM thing.

If you're interested in co-, group or team-maintainership, let me know!

Regards,
Christian
