Subject Re: [Proposal] Apache TVM
Date Thu, 28 Feb 2019 05:50:54 GMT
Hi Henry:

Because the TVM community already adopts Apache meritocracy and has a
separation of PMC and committers. Every new member(PMC and committers) are
formally discussed and we welcome each member in the community by
summarizing their contributions.
If possible,  we would like to keep the same structure during incubation.
The current PMC members are actively proposing new committers and PMC
members from different organizations in the past few months and will
continue doing so after the incubation.
