Re: Helping out with the .7 release
Hi Saikat,

I agree with Paritosh, that a great place to begin would be to write
some unit tests. This will familiarize you with the code base and help
us a lot with our 0.7 housekeeping release. The new clustering
classification components are going to unify many - but not all - of the
existing clustering algorithms to reduce their complexity by factoring
out duplication and streamlining their integration into semi-supervised
classification engines.

Please feel free to post any questions you may have in reading through
this code. This is a major refactoring effort and we will need all the
help we can get. Thanks for the offer,
