BUG: stats: fix misnamed _argcheck method of the erlang distribution. #198
The code changes are pretty simple, but there is a discussion in the trac ticket about whether erlang should allow non-integer shape parameters. (This would make erlang an alias for gamma.) If you have an opinion on that, could you add a comment in the trac ticket?
As discussed on the ticket and mailing list, I'm pretty much against this change. It breaks the pattern of continuous parameter spaces without sufficient benefits that I can see.
The only reason to make this change is if we also create a fit method that restricts to discrete parameter spaces.
