This patchset adds the binaries, C++ library and Python frontend for the XGBoost gradient boosting framework.
I noticed r-xgboost in the packages, which compiles a bundled copy of xgboost. Ideally it would inherit from xgboost and build from there, but I do not work with R so I can't help with this.
I also had to do some dirty hack in the python patch for reading version and using libxgboost from the xgboost package. Lmk is there is a better way to handle this.
