Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache MXNet (incubating) version 1.7.0.rc1
Date Wed, 05 Aug 2020 01:49:03 GMT
Hi Justin,

I am here to response the issues you mentioned in [2] [3] and [5].

For [2] and [5], I monitored the DJL project that addressed the folliowing:

  1.  Change all MXNet to Apache MXNet (incubating) from documentation where it necessary
  2.  Change maven package description ” MXNet Engine Adapter for DJL” to  "Deep Java
Library (DJL) Engine Adapter for Apache MXNet" for clarification
  3.  Other necessary changes to address the concerns

For [3], this package contains no source code from Apache MXNet and only contains the binary
that built from source through the Apache MXNet source code without modification. It also
brought necessary License and binary attribution from Apache MXNet. Hope this can help unblock
Apache MXNet release.

-1 (binding) as this release contains code that hasn’t gone though IP clearance (mshadow).

I checked:
- incubating in name
- disclaimer exists
- LICENSE and NOTICE have improved but I did not do an exhaustive check
-  No unexpected binary file
- ASF files have ASF headers
- unable to compile from source

It also seems that this code may have been released before the PPMC/IPMC vote is over see
[1][2][3][4] There are also branding and trademark issue with this site [5] This is in addition
to the issues previously noted with releases, branding and trademarks.[6]
