Adding MXNet report

  
  
  --------------------
- MXNet
+ Apache MXNet
  
- A Flexible and Efficient Library for Deep Learning
+ MXNet is an open-source deep learning framework that allows you to define,
+ train, and deploy deep neural networks on a wide array of devices, from
+ cloud infrastructure to mobile devices. It is highly scalable, allowing for
+ fast model training, and supports a flexible programming model and multiple
+ languages. MXNet allows you to mix symbolic and imperative programming
+ flavors to maximize both efficiency and productivity. MXNet is built on a
+ dynamic dependency scheduler that automatically parallelizes both symbolic
+ and imperative operations on the fly. A graph optimization layer on top of
+ that makes symbolic execution fast and memory efficient. The MXNet library
+ is portable and lightweight, and it scales to multiple GPUs and multiple
+ machines.
  
- MXNet has been incubating since 2017-01-23.
+ *   A list of the three most important issues to address in the move
+ towards graduation.
  
- Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
+ 1.  Migrate code(GitHub) and website to Apache.     
+ 2.  Improved documentation including APIs, Tutorials, etc. and
+ user-experience like improved error messages, etc.
+ 3.  Features: Support additional features (new operators) requested by user
+ community.  Accelerate performance on CPUs and GPUs.

+ aware of:
  
+ Code and website have taken time to get moving on. The plan is to discuss 
+ these with Apache Infra at ApacheCon and then get the code migrated in May.

+ *   How has the community developed since the last report.
  
+ 1. The community was engaged for contributions to API documentation and
+ tutorials.
+ 2. Slack channels have been created for the community to contribute
+ discussions to (though they need to move to the ASF Slack channel that 
+ was recently created).
+ 3. In the last month, excluding merges, 51 authors have pushed 165 commits
+ to master and 180 commits to all branches. On master, 502 files have
+ changed and there have been 26,246 additions and 12,188 deletions. Count of
+ Closed Issues = 62, Count of New Issues = 146, Count of Merged Pull
+ Requests = 161, Count of Proposed Pull Requests = 27.

- Please feel free to add your own commentary.
+ 1. The API Documentation has improved.
+ 2. More features (e.g. operators) requested by the user community has been added.
+ 3. Hardware acceleration like cuDDN6 integration and MKL ML package
+ integration was completed.
+ 4. A new Perl language binding for MXNet was added.
