Subject Re: [Proposal] Apache TVM
Date Mon, 18 Feb 2019 21:07:57 GMT
Thanks, everyone for helpful feedbacks. I would like to clarify a few
points being raised so far on behalf of the current TVM PMC.

> PMC vs PMC member

Thanks for pointing it out. This is something we overlooked and will update
the proposal to make the change accordingly.

> Champion

Markus has been actively engaging with the TVM community and helped the
community start the incubation process. These efforts include:
- Introduce the Apache way to in the TVM conference last Dec
- Help the community to start the incubation conversation(also Thanks to
Sebastian and Gon)
- Watch the pre-incubation private list, and give helpful feedback

While we do not expect our mentor to actively watch the community on the
daily basis(many of our committers only contribute a few days in a week),
he has been very responsive and helped us to shape the incubation proposal
and most importantly be a strong advocate of the Apache way. I personally
think he is more than qualified as our champion:)

> Hardware artifact

INAL, however, given that Apache only releases source code and our source
code is in the form of software source code (HLS C and we are moving to
Chisel-(scala) ). Then anyone can take the software source code and
generate unofficial hardware release.
