PyWavelets started in 2006 as an academic project for a masters thesis on Analysis and Classification of Medical Signals using Wavelet Transforms and was maintained until 2012 by its original developer. In 2013 maintenance was taken over in a new repo) by a larger development team - a move supported by the original developer. The repo move doesn’t mean that this is a fork - the package continues to be developed under the name “PyWavelets”, and released on PyPI and Github (see this issue for the discussion where that was decided).
