Re: Bug#941569: RFS: sentencepiece/0.1.83+dfsg-1 [ITP] -- Unsupervised text tokenizer for Neural Network-based text generation

(re-sent due to incorrect CC address in last post)

Thank you for working on this.
Although it may sound boring or even frustrating, data used for training
machine learning models, or pre-trained machine learning models
should be carefully dealt with.

Your copyright file is not complete

at least one file in data/ directory are not apache-2.0 licensed:

and I'm wondering whether the Japanese poetry book is free:
(I don't speak Japanese but from the "Chinese characters" within the
 I guess it's a poetry book)
as its publisher is 青空文庫. Please confirm the copyright information
for this book and its DFSG compliance.

When there are DFSG-incompatible stuff in a source package, a common
practice in Debian is to strip those components from the original
tarballs and prefix the version string with +dfsg. However, data-driven
applications could become useless when the training data was removed...
This is an awkward difficulty, or say conflict in practice between
free software world and the academical machine learning (computational
linguistics) community.

Besides, the packaging of tensorflow is stalled, as it's difficult
to tame the 4.5 million lines of code without a usable build system.
For a long time the users (including myself) have to (somewhat)
depend on third party ecosystems until the day Google started to
rethink about distribution integration (basically hopeless).

Apart from the science team, you are welcome to join the deep learning
team as well: https://salsa.debian.org/deeplearning-team
(it's an informal team)
