MBT is a memory-based tagger-generator and tagger in one. The tagger-generator
part can generate a sequence tagger on the basis of a training set of tagged
sequences; the tagger part can tag new sequences. MBT can, for instance, be
used to generate part-of-speech taggers or chunkers for natural language
processing.  Features:
* Tagger generation: tagged text in, tagger out,
* Optional feedback loop: feed previous tag decision back to input of next
* Easily customizable feature representation; can incorporate user-provided
* Automatic generation of separate sub-taggers for known words and unknown
* Can make use of full algorithmic parameters of TiMBL.
MBT is a product of the Centre of Language and Speech Technology (Radboud
University Nijmegen, The Netherlands), the ILK Research Group (Tilburg
University, The Netherlands) and the CLiPS Research Centre (University
of Antwerp, Belgium).
If you do scientific research in natural language processing, MBT will
likely be of use to you.

Seiti Furusato (Closes: #752822)
[ Joost van Baal-Ilić ]
* debian/control: tighten build-depends libtimbl4-dev from >= 6.4.4 to
>= 6.4.8, in order to get rid of DNBFS
2016-02-04 - Joost van Baal-Ilić <joostvb@debian.org>
mbt (3.2.12-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Upload to unstable.
* debian/control, debian/copyright: Upstream has moved from Tilburg to
Nijmegen: Homepage moved from http://ilk.uvt.nl/mbt/ to
http://languagemachines.github.io/mbt/; add new upstream contact
lamasoftware (at) science.ru.nl to copyright.
* .gitignore: remove; it breaks gbp.
* debian/control, debian/rules: use dh-autoreconf so that 'debian/rules
clean' does what we want.
* config.guess config.sub configure: track these files since they're shipped
in upstream tarball.
2015-06-20 - Joost van Baal-Ilić <joostvb@debian.org>
mbt (3.2.12-1) experimental; urgency=low
* New upstream (missed 3.2.11)
[ Ko van der Sloot ]
* debian/control: Standards-Version upgraded from policy 3.9.4 to 3.9.6 (no
changes needed)
[ Joost van Baal-Ilić ]
* debian/control: fix syntax (thanks lintian).
* debian/copyright: refer to versioned GPL-3 (thanks lintian).
* .gitignore: do no longer track config.{guess,sub}, configure, mbt.pc in
git: these files are generated.
2014-10-28 - Joost van Baal-Ilić <joostvb@debian.org>
mbt (3.2.10-5) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/control: migrated version control from Subversion to git (still on
Debian's Alioth).
* debian/*: change version control tags from Subversion to git.
* debian/watch: more strict.
2013-08-01 - Joost van Baal-Ilić <joostvb@debian.org>
mbt (3.2.10-4) unstable; urgency=low
* debian/libmbt1-dev.install, debian/libmbt-dev.install, debian/control:
rename libmbt-dev to libmblt1-dev.  Upstream cannot guarantee strong
compatibility yet.
* debian/control: change Build-Depends "libtimbl4-dev | libtimbl-dev"
in "libtimbl4-dev": on second thought, we decided not to go for
unversioned libtimbl-dev.  See also Bug#718503: "release.debian.org:
transition: timbl".
* debian/control: change Build-Depends "libticcutils2-dev |
libticcutils-dev" in "libticcutils2-dev (>=0.3)": on second thought, we
decided not to go for unversioned libticcutils-dev.  See also Bug#718501:
"release.debian.org: transition: ticcutils".
* debian/control: Standards-Version upgraded from policy 3.9.3 to 3.9.4 (no
other changes needed: section 8.6 is mostly not applicable to us: we keep
using shlibs files, not symbols, since we build from C++ sources).
* debian/TODO: remove obsolete file.
