Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache MXNet (incubating) version 1.5.0.rc2
Date Tue, 16 Jul 2019 18:46:16 GMT
Hi Justin,

It’s added in this PR[1] which is trying to improve our LICENSE file. A
bunch of submodules were also added and we are aware we should only include
those bundled in source release.
I have verified all license in the top level LICENSE file are included in
source release except this MKL BLAS license. It was added by mistake since
there was some confusion on MKL-DNN (Apache 2.0), MKLML(Intel simplified
license) and MKL (intel simplified license).

There are two related options in MXNet build flags, USE_BLAS and
USE_MKLDNN, USE_BLAS has option to use full MKL BLAS, users has to install
separately and it's not included in MXNet release. USE_MKLDNN=1 will use
MKLDNN(included in MXNet source release).  MKLDNN will donwload MKLML with
intel simplified license during build time only. As per discussion here,
the Intel simplified license  should be removed from LICENSE file.[2]
