Inconsistent interface?

Hi, is there a reason that gl.boostedtreesclassifier.create accepts argument "validationset", while gl.logisticclassifier.create does not?

Hi bgbg,

Thank you for pointing this out. We are always trying to make our interface more consistent, and we'll work on fixing this.

You can always evaluate the already-trained model on the validation set with .evaluate(). Would this be a workaround that is OK for the time being?

Cheers! -Piotr

yes, I'm aware of this workaround. Thank you
