Subject [math] Re: commons math

Sounds great!  Extending the stat package to include some data mining
capabilities would be a good and useful addition to commons-math,
IMHO.  To get started, the first thing to do is to read the
developer's guide
(, which will
tell point you to the general apache references and go over some IP
stuff that we have to worry about in [math].

Then either here or on the Wiki (see the guide for a link), post a
brief description of the kinds of mining algorithms that you are
interested in developing and we can get this going. On this list, pls
begin the subject line of all [math] messages with [math].

Thanks in advance for your contributions!
