I wonder if anyone knows when a python API will be added for Gradient Boosted Trees? I see that java and scala APIs were added for the 1.2 release, and would love to be able to build GBMs in pyspark too. I find the convenience of being able to use numpy + scipy + matplotlib pretty compelling.


As an alternative, if it’ll be a while before this API is implemented, does anyone have suggestions for scala replacements for the above python libraries?
