Bug#893859: ITP: r-cran-ucminf -- GNU R general-purpose unconstrained non-linear optimization

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

* Package name    : r-cran-ucminf
  Version         : 1.1-4
  Upstream Author : Hans Bruun Nielsen and Stig Bousgaard Mortensen

  Programming Lang: GNU R
  Description     : GNU R general-purpose unconstrained non-linear optimization
 An algorithm for general-purpose unconstrained non-linear optimization.
 The algorithm is of quasi-Newton type with BFGS updating of the inverse
 Hessian and soft line search with a trust region type monitoring of the
 input to the line search algorithm. The interface of 'ucminf' is
 designed for easy interchange with 'optim'.

Remark: This package is part of a pyramid of dependencies to package
 r-cran-zeligverse which is needed to run the full test suite of
 r-cran-zelig (see #883002).  It will be maintained by the r-pkg team at
