This package is used by "orange" application.
Comment 3 Herman Viaene 2022-10-15 12:09:11 CEST
MGA8-64 MATE on Acer Aspire 5253.
No installation issues.
Tried to follow papoteur's recommendation above and installed orange.
Launching it from CLI with trace:
$ strace -o pyjoblib.txt orange-canvas 
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/orange-canvas", line 6, in <module>
    from pkg_resources import load_entry_point

As the comments on python3-joblib state
"Joblib is a set of tools to provide lightweight pipelining in Python. In particular, joblib offers:
* transparent disk-caching of the output values and lazy re-evaluation (memorize pattern)
* easy simple parallel computing
* logging and tracing of the execution."

This is developer's territory, so I'll OK it on clean install

Comment 4 Herman Viaene 2022-10-15 12:12:41 CEST
And the trace shows references to py - joblib, so the crash for other reasons does not matter.
