Subject Re: How to contribute to MADlib

Hi Ivan,

Thank you very much for your quick response.

We are still thinking about ideas of new modules to add to MADlib, and 
we are also glad to implement new functionalities proposed by MADlib 
users and developers.

It would be great if we have a wiki page that keeps track of new 
modules to add and module development status.
