I just noticed that I never got an explicit answer to the question raised in Criteria for including new functionality into scikit-image : @skimage-core how do we feel about adding the function suggested in
to scikit-image and maintaining it? I’d like to get a (silent) consensus on this before we invest more work into this.
Based on our extended criteria in #6488:
- Licensing: This should not be an issue, see Add division of self overlapping polygons by fercer · Pull Request #6462 · scikit-image/scikit-image · GitHub
- Established methods: Honestly, I don’t think it qualifies yet as “established, well documented in the literature and widely used by the imaging community”. There is a paper Redirecting from 2014. Google Scholar finds 4 citations (1 preprint, 1 same author).
Personally, I feel that this method may still be useful to include in scikit-image and also kind I am a little invested because fercer and others already put in some work. Still, it’s a complex and large contribution that is not trivial to review.
