Hello Everyone

Jörn, yes it (training MaxEnt models for OpenNLP from the French
Treebank) is actually part of our plan (building a French-Speaking
UIMA Community). We wanted also to contribute to the OpenNLP project
since no models was available for French processing!

About  the right to train models on this data set and then distribute
them under Apache License 2: It took time for us to get the right to
do it, but I think it was because we were the first to ask for. Now
they know about it. I know that the maltparser team
(http://maltparser.org/) would be also interested by the grant. You
may ask for the French Treebank authors. I can also ask them for
letting an explicit mention about the right to do it on their web

As far as I know, the data training set for the English and German POS
models are not freely available, are they ?

Eventually, Jörn, I m not sure to understand. Do you think the IP
clearance process is not adapted for submitting our contribution ?

Tommaso, I will blog post the procedure I used to train the models.
There is nothing really special. I used some freely available (under
AL2) AE components. The HMM learner is already present in the HMM
Tagger addon. The few other UIMA components I used are also available
on some google forges (uima-common, uima-connectors,
