Hi Nico, Thanks for getting in touch with the Flink community! You have dug out a pretty old JIRA issue. When the issue was created, most of the development happened in the batch processing / machine learning area. Since then, the focus of the project has shifted towards stream processing. Most contributors and committers are working in that space.
I'm afraid, but I don't think there is a committer working on ML algorithms on Flink at the moment. AFAIK, also nobody has signed up as a GSOC mentor this year.
