Description : simple and fast implementation of Fisher's exact test
Fisher's exact test is a statistical significance test used in the
analysis of contingency tables where sample sizes are small.
This package implements the Fisher's exact test as a Python Extension
I cc:ed the firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list, maybe someone there is
interested in packaging it.
The src/cfisher.pyx file contains the following statement:
"some of this code is originally from the internet. (thanks)"
I also cc:ed the upstream authors for their comments on that sentence,
FTR the file contains references to three URLs, so I guess this is the
code taken from the Internet. What is its license?
