I can’t stress this enough – tooling is all fine and dandy, but are you making it so that
the default way to interact with *Apache* MXNet (note emphasis) to not be on Apache

There is no official policy other than if it didn’t happen on the list, it didn’t happen.

Decisions must be made on the mailing list, and frankly, as a casual observer of the dev
list I’m not entirely sure that decisions are occurring on the list right now.

Is there a reason not to use PonyMail? Or at least give it a try?

    Hi Chris,
    Members of the Apache MXNet community have pointed to the high level of
    activity on Pytorch's forum <> as a reason to
    use Discourse. Discourse has a lot of great community features which make
    it easier to have a discussion, follow specific questions, and learn
    quickly, particularly for users new to deep learning. Discourse is open
    source (GNU GPL) API and can also be integrated with the Apache mailing
    lists, the way Nabble and PonyMail are. Is there an official stance or set
    of guidelines wrt forums? Any guidance is appreciated.
