Description Igor Gnatenko 2015-11-11 20:45:12 UTC
Spec URL:
PyMVPA is a Python package intended to ease statistical learning analyses of
large datasets. It offers an extensible framework with a high-level interface
to a broad range of algorithms for classification, regression, feature
selection, data import and export. It is designed to integrate well with
related software packages, such as scikit-learn, shogun, MDP, etc. While it is
not limited to the neuroimaging domain, it is eminently suited for such
datasets. PyMVPA is free software and requires nothing but free-software to

PyMVPA stands for MultiVariate Pattern Analysis (MVPA) in Python.

besser82's shogun-4.0.1-0.4.git20150913.d8eb73d.fc24 completed

Can you do review because shogun fixed and other packages in place? ;)

Comment 3 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2015-12-12 16:04:14 UTC
Yes, I'll probably do a round of review work this weekend.

Comment 4 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2015-12-13 03:05:08 UTC
- name should be lowercase
- xvfb-run should be used with "-a" (automatically select free display number)
- #!/usr/bin/env /usr/bin/pythonX should be replaced with #!/usr/bin/pythonX

Now the usual question: are executables for both python versions wanted?
* pymvpa2 has support for loading python code with --preload, so yes
* pymvpa2-prep-afni-surf just calls a function to preprocess some data, so no
* pymvpa2-prep-fmri likewise no
* pymvpa2-tutorial starts an IPython interactive session, so yes

- so please package just one version for the two executables which don't need two
- Recommends is used for various python modules which are imported. This doesn't seem right, the should be Require-d, since those executables simply don't work without them.

Maybe pymvpa2-tutorial should be split out in a separate subpackage with Requires: python3-ipython.

It would be great to get the tests to pass, that's pretty much the best way to test code compatibility.

Build fails here with:
    File not found: /builddir/build/BUILDROOT/python-PyMVPA-2.4.0-3.fc24.x86_64/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pymvpa2*-egginfo

Unfortunately I don't have time to work on these review requests anymore, sorry.
