# Scala mllib 2.2.0 k means. Number of runs

As per the documentation here, the runs parameter does nothing. I have looked at the actual Scala code for k means and it appears that the train method only does one start. There is no way to change this.

QUESTION: Am I correct that if I want 5 starts I need to write my own code that calls train 5 times (or until some criteria has been met)?
