>> MXNet
>> 
>> Apache MXNet is an open-source, scalable, distributed and high-performance
>> deep learning framework that allows you to define, train, and deploy deep
>> neural networks on a wide array of devices, from cloud infrastructure to
>> mobile devices. It is highly scalable, allowing for fast model training,
>> and supports a flexible programming model and multiple languages. Apache
>> MXNet allows you to mix symbolic and imperative programming flavors to
>> maximize both efficiency and productivity. Apache MXNet is built on a
>> dynamic dependency scheduler that automatically parallelizes both symbolic
>> and imperative operations on the fly. A graph optimization layer on top of
>> that makes symbolic execution fast and memory efficient. The Apache MXNet
>> library is portable and lightweight, and it scales to multiple GPUs and
>> multiple machines.
>> 
>> 
>> Apache MXNet has been incubating since 2017-01-23.
>> 
>> Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:

>> How has the community developed since the last report?
>> 
>> a) Various Slack channels, dev@ mailing lists, and user discussion forums
>> (
>> http://discuss.mxnet.io) are being used actively. The contributors have
>> been working on having all discussions on the public dev@ mailing list as

>> This

>> PLC4X
>> 
>> PLC4X is a set of libraries for communicating with industrial programmable
>> logic controllers (PLCs) using a variety of protocols but with a shared
>> API.
>> 
>> 
>> PLC4X has been incubating since 2017-12-18.
>> 
>> Most important issues to address while moving towards graduation:
>> 
>>  *   Building the community: The PPMC and committer group has a large
>> percentage of codecentric employees, we have been recruiting people from
>> other companies, but will have to continue these efforts for establishing a
>> healthy Apache community.
>>  *   Onboarding of new committers: With PLC4X several people on the team
>> are not very familiar with the Apache Way. We have started and will
>> continue our efforts on this onboarding.
>>  *   Podling name search: We have invested a lot of time on the name
>> search prior to starting to work on the project, but we still need the
>> official OK that we’re allowed to keep the Name of Apache PLC4X.
>> *    Make our first release
>> 
>> Any Issues the Incubator PMC or ASF Board might wish/need to be aware of:
>> 
>>  *   In order to get access to some of the specifications the ASF will
>> eventually have to become Members of some external foundations: OPC,
>> EtherCat, Modbus … these memberships usually have a free level, that allows
>> us to use the specifications but doesn’t result in any regular costs. We
>> will have to discuss these details with the ASF and the other foundations.
>>  *   One of the external foundations (Profinet) doesn’t have a free
>> membership. In general, the CEO of the European branch of the Profinet
>> Foundation has signaled that it should be possible for the ASF to become a
>> member and have an outside company pay the membership fees, but we have to
>> discuss the details (With them as well as the ASF).
>> 
>> How has the community developed since the last report?
>> 
>>  *   We have been accepted into the Apache Incubator just a week before
>> Christmas, we are still in the process of setting up
>>  *   Prior to joining the Apache Incubator however, we have managed to
>> recruit people from other Apache projects and are working on getting other
>> people familiar with the protocols and the industry involved. After the
>> Christmas break we are planning on contacting a big group of people that
>> have claimed to be wanting to be involved (A list of about 20 Companies,
>> but we can’t tell how many will be using and how many would also be willing
>> to contribute)
>>  *   We have started the onboarding of new committers and will be
>> continuing to do this (extended emails with a lot of explanations on why we
>> are doing things the way we are)
>>  *   Project has bootstrapped quickly and we have mailing lists, website,
>> JIRA etc. all set up and running.
>>  *   Testing coverage has been improved over the initial code base
>> 
>> How has the project developed since the last report?
>> 
>>  *   There was no last report.
>> 
>> How does the podling rate their own maturity?
>> 
>>  *   We have a mix of new participants and experienced Apache people
>> involved.
>>  *   So far, the new participants have shown great willingness and success
>> in adopting the Apache Way.
>>  *   However, we still need to continue:
>>     *   the on-boarding
>>     *   increasing the diversity of the team
>>  *   Also, will we need to decide and establish all the processes involved
>> in releasing software at Apache

>> • We voted one new committer: wentao shi

>> issues, how to develop plugins conveniently, how to replace Facebook/Yoga,
>> whether to create a project channel, etc. More and more non-alibaba and
>> non-Chinese guys were participating in the discussions.
>> • More non-alibaba developers are using Weex and reporting issues,
>> including developers from Tencent, Geekbang, SNDA, etc.
>> • Our Github repo has growth in contributors (135), forks (974), watchers
>> (377) and stars (7108)
