Hello, I was wondering what the (production) status of the CLTK API(v2?) is, and whether it would be possible to work on it as part of Google Summer of Code? I was originally looking into implementing some NLP for Classical Chinese but, since CLTK core doesn't provide a straightforward way to access the three existing corpora, it wasn't clear to me whether I should use something like Capitains and work with the raw TEI XML (see cltk/cltk#560) or use the converted JSON+API instead. Since this issue seems to be cropping up across several Github issues, could working on better documentation about how to read corpora also be a project in its own right (cltk/cltk#615)?
