Memory-Based Learning (MBL) is a machine-learning method applicable to a wide
range of tasks in Natural Language Processing (NLP).
Frog is a modular system integrating a morphosyntactic tagger, lemmatizer,
morphological analyzer, and dependency parser for natural languages.  It is
based upon it's predecessor TADPOLE (TAgger, Dependency Parser, and
mOrphoLogical analyzEr).  Using Memory-Based Learning techniques, frog
tokenizes, tags, lemmatizes, and morphologically segments word tokens in
incoming UTF-8 text files, and assigns a dependency graph to each sentence.
Frog is particularly targeted at the increasing need for fast, automatic NLP
systems applicable to very large (multi-million to billion word) document
collections that are becoming available due to the progressive digitization of
both new and old textual data.  Up to now, frog has only been tested and used
using corpora of Dutch natural language (see the frogdata package for samples).
Frog is a product of the Centre of Language and Speech Technology at
Radboud University Nijmegen, it subsumes previous work by the
ILK Research Group (Tilburg University, The Netherlands) and
the CLiPS Research Centre (University of Antwerp, Belgium).
If you do scientific research in NLP, Frog will likely be of use to you.

* New upstream release.  (Missed: 0.12.18, released 2014-09-16; 0.12.19,
released 2014-12-01)
- Fixes "frog: FTBFS with timblserver 1.8". Thanks Andreas Beckmann
(Closes: #813445).
* debian/control: update description (thanks Ko van der Sloot).
* debian/copyright: Now _really_ no longer point to the versionless
symlink to license files.
* debian/{control,copyright,rules,watch}: migrated version control
from Subversion to git (still on Debian's Alioth).  Change version
control tags from Subversion to git.
* debian/watch: more strict.
* debian/control: change Build-Depends
- "libtimblserver3-dev | libtimblserver-dev" into "libtimblserver4-dev",
- "libfolia2-dev | libfolia-dev" into libfolia-dev (>= 0.13-1~),
- "libticcutils2-dev | libticcutils-dev" into "libticcutils2-dev (>= 0.5)",
- "libucto2-dev | libucto-dev" into "libucto-dev (>= 0.8.0)".
* debian/control: In the default configuration, frog attempts to use the
ucto tokenizer, and gives a cryptic error message when it is not found.
Therefore: add "Recommends: ucto" to Package frog.  Thanks Andreas van
Cranenburgh (Closes: #734151).
* Acknowledge NMU 0.12.17-7.1, thanks Luk Claes.
* .gitignore: added.

frog (0.12.17-7.1) unstable; urgency=high
* Non-maintainer upload.
* Only use currently existing -dev package names in build dependencies,
so the package can be built on the buildds (Closes: #717394).
