[SciPy-dev] Genetic Algorithms module in scikits.learn

Hello.

I'm trying to maintain and release scikits.learn[1], and for historical
reasons there's a module for genetic algorithms in this package.

As the module does not quite fit the package's thematic, has references
to scipy.ga (which has moved to scipy.sandbox and is no longer
maintained) and there are already some great genetic algorithm
frameworks in Python, I'm rather inclined to remove this from scikits.learn.

If there are no objections, I'll remove that module from scikits.learn,
but just wanted to say that I've uploaded the code to github [2] in case
someone finds it useful or is willing to maintain.


Thanks,

~fabian
