Subject Re: Home for the colt fork
Date Tue, 08 Dec 2009 17:10:48 GMT
Actually, the reason that we have Colt in Mahout is it has proven impossible
to get changes into commons math.  We really, really wanted to use commons
math rather than have our own linear algebra package, but it just proved
impossible and we didn't want to wait forever.

If that problem were solved, then it would be great to depend on commons
math.  If that problem isn't solved, then there is no way to depend on
commons math.
