Bug#879565: ITP: r-cran-lava -- GNU R latent variable models




Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Andreas Tille <tille@xxxxxxxxxx>

* Package name    : r-cran-lava
  Version         : 1.5.1
  Upstream Author : Klaus K. Holst <klaus@xxxxxxxx>
* URL             : https://cran.r-project.org/package=lava
* License         : GPL
  Programming Lang: GNU R
  Description     : GNU R latent variable models
 A general implementation of Structural Equation Models
 with latent variables (MLE, 2SLS, and composite likelihood
 estimators) with both continuous, censored, and ordinal
 outcomes (Holst and Budtz-Joergensen (2013)
 <doi:10.1007/s00180-012-0344-y>). The package also provides
 methods for graph exploration (d-separation, back-door criterion),
 simulation of general non-linear latent variable models, and
 estimation of influence functions for a broad range of statistical
 models.


Remark: This package belongs to a pyramid of dependencies to upgrade
r-cran-caret to its latest upstream version.  It will be maintained by
the Debian Science team at
    https://anonscm.debian.org/git/debian-science/packages/r-cran-lava.git
Any takers for other new dependencies of r-cran-caret would be
really appreciated.
