Hmmm, currently we do not have the task "Data mining" in Debian Science
(even if this might make some sense) but only "Data acquisition" which
is a bit different. Feel free to discuss this on Debian Science list
(preferably by suggesting other packages which would fall into this
category). So for the moment I'll leave it in "Machine learning" until
we either decided to create "Data mining" or you propose another of the

Debian developers have their usual Debian login, other users get the
"-guest" suffix - that's a convention on Alioth (might be a FAQ and
should be described at some prominent place).

a released version would be prefered (even if not really necessary).
Doing the preparations based on SVN is a good idea to be ready with the
