Bug#919782: RFA: ceres-solver -- nonlinear least squares minimizer
I am no longer interested in maintaining ceres-solver which I
re-introduced into Debian in March 2013, so I request an adopter for it.
I leave it up to the adopter to either join the Debian science team (if
not a member already) or take it outside the team to maintain it
The package is in okay'ish shape. Upstream is not really interested in
fixing failing tests on the low-power not-so-mainstream architectures,
and there's an issue regarding dependencies on Eigen (#883619, #868355).
The package description is:
Ceres Solver is an open source C++ library for modeling and solving large,
complicated optimization problems.
It is a feature rich, mature and performant library which has been used
in production at Google since 2010.
Ceres Solver can solve two kinds of problems.
- Non-linear Least Squares problems with bounds constraints.
- General unconstrained optimization problems.
