Subject AW: Ivy - any future or is it also going to be retired?
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2016 07:55:37 GMT
We see Ivy as a widely used component. We use archiving some components to recalibrate our
focus.
I don't think that we want to archive Ivy in the near future. Instead we try to push Ivy.

If you want to help with Ivy, you're welcome.

"It's already a challenge to stick with Ivy build system itself given the lack of fixes/releases/responses."
What are the problems you think are resolved with new Ivy releases?
