#1484: "Kulsinski" dissimilarity seems wrong
 Reporter:  muellner  |       Owner:  somebody

 The "Kulsinski" dissimilarity in the module scipy.spatial.distance seems

 First, the function does not do what the documentation


 says: it always returns integer values. Maybe this is a forgotten
 float(...) in scipy/spatial/distance.py, line 421.

 Second, the definition does not agree what I find elsewhere on the net.




 Can someone please check whether the SciPy definition makes sense and/or
 is intenionally different from the definition found in R?
