@theranger: Hey, I'm sorry I forgot about this when I merged this PR; I'd be happy to add your name to the list of authors in src/mlpack/core.hpp and COPYRIGHT.txt; would you want me to do that? If so, let me know what name/email you'd like me to use.
I set the cutoff at "more than 0 characters contributed to git master" to keep things simple, so, I've added your name to the contributors in 9f1d08a. Thanks! If you have any more issues feel free to submit more PRs. :)
