@hearot Thank you for letting us know about your project! Lately a CLTK contrib has been working on readers, too, since this has been a weak spot for our project. See two recent PRs here, though we have not written docs yet:
I am curious: What are the goals for

for the data, how much preparation will be required. Concerning this last point, please remember that GSoC is about code, not data cleaning. We are not able to accept an otherwise brilliant application that also requires 6 weeks of data annotation or cleanup. If you believe you are able to do your data prep during application period or Community Bonding period, please explain that.
