Description : GNU R package with miscellaneous functions of the Dept of Statisics (e1071)
This package is a Build-Depends: of RcmdrMisc (== r-cran-rcmdrmisc) which
itself is a Build-Depends of Rcmdr (== r-cran-cmdr) which is a package we had
in Debian for a decade.
e1071 is a stable package which reflects work by the authors when working in
the Dept of Statistics at TU Wien. They have all moved on to different
departments/universities, and the package is in maintenance mode.
It includes a wrapper to libsvm which itself is BSD licensed and pretty
widely used within R via this package.
