Hi Sahm,

Unless I'm mistaken [1], but org.apache.spark.mllib is put on hold and is considered @deprecated these days. That'd explain why "so many things made private".

Dear spark developers,

just tried to modify the MultivariateGaussian from org.apache.spark.mllib.stat.distribution and failed miserably because there are so many things made private.

Why? What would be a good way to deal with this? Rewrite everything?

thanks a lot,

Stephan Sahm
