Subject Re: [DISCUSS] PredictionIO incubation proposal
Date Sat, 21 May 2016 15:07:09 GMT
Not proposing including code we don’t own, proposing that we include the mechanism for contribution.
The reason I bring this up is that the only documented way to get a template is to download
it from the Gallery.  But I agree it can be worked out during incubation.

Also asking if Salesforce is donating any of their templates, this is separate from the core
PIO repo and also separate from the Gallery. This is the part I didn’t see addressed (I
think meaning they are not donated). Not a problem either way, just asking.

types of machine learning applications, and is a complemental part of the
project. At this point we exclude the Template Gallery from the proposal,
as it has a separate set of contributors and we’re not familiar with an
Apache approved mechanism to maintain such a gallery.​"

I agree with the proposers that tracking down a large set of contributors
to get their ok for a consolidated grant would be onerous.
