Subject Re: About FLINK-1537 Machine learning with Apache Flink
Date Tue, 03 Mar 2015 20:37:48 GMT
Hey Dulaj!

I think that the issue is only marked as "low priority", because it is not
on the immediate roadmap for any committer and we are looking for outside
contributors.

If that is actually what you are interested in, I think you can pick this
topic!

Stephan
