Hi, (I'm one of the school supervisors of the project) Benoit Jacob <jacob.benoit.1@xxxxxxxxx> writes: > I think that actually implementing the SVD code (without resorting to > JacobiSVD), and supporting complex matrices, should be the two main > missing prerequisites to consider including this in Eigen. I can't speak for students, but a 100% complete implementation seems unlikely to happen before the end of the project (which is next wednesday, and there are other non-technical tasks which will take time too). Students have an internship after the project, so they are unlikely to find more time to work on this (although I do encourage all of them to continue contributing!). In any case, we should find a way for the work already done to be useful to Eigen. I think that leaving some unmaintained code on bitbucket has little chance to be actually useful one day. Obviously, a nice scenario would be that someone from the Eigen community volunteers to continue the work started and merge it. If not, we have to find a way to make it easy for someone to take over the project. At least, mentionning the bitbucket repository on the appropriate bug may help: http://eigen.tuxfamily.org/bz/show_bug.cgi?id=67 (together with some instructions on what's still to be done) I had the feeling that merging at least part of the code into Eigen could help too, even if it doesn't bring immediate and substancial benefits. But I do not know Eigen enough to really tell, and I understand that merging right before a release is not a good idea. How do you see the future of this project? Is anyone interested in continuing the work? Thanks, -- Matthieu Moy http://www-verimag.imag.fr/~moy/
