Yes. I don’t want to discourage innovation because of the existence of a half finished package. At this state it should not be considered as relevant to anyone who is interested into tackling SVMs themselves.
I started KSVM with a very particular vision of what it should be, but quickly discovered that I need some other building blocks first in order to realize my plan the way I want to. Some parts are almost there (such as LossFunctions.jl), some I still need to flesh out. Basically I am following a bottom up approach that has very little “visible” progress, so I try to keep quiet unless I have something concrete to report. I only have my spare time available for this, but I will get there eventually.
