not sure if this is the right channel - april of last year i was encouraged to open an issue regarding the ability to set custom priors. you guys took a bit of time to respond & suggested the change would take a couple of months. i assumed this could probably mean 3-4 which takes us to Xmas. despite the time, i would really like the ability to plug in prior values without them being assumed to be 0.1 (or whatever values you guys are using). would you mind to update whether this is still something you would consider to plug-in? concern for me specifically is that the ability to use prior data which can help with the relatively low sample sizes we get was absolutely one of the benefits of the bayesian engine, hence our interest in GB started from its support for bayesian.
