Report for Apache MxNet

- A Flexible and Efficient Library for Deep Learning
+ Apache 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.

  Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation:
-   1.
-   2.
-   3.
+   1. Establish a predictable release process consistent with Apache Way -- ONGOING.
+   2. Grow the Community - Ongoing 
+   3. Update project website to Apache standards - In Progress
+   4. Identify remaining ICLAs and SGAs that need to be addressed - in progress
  Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be
  aware of?
+   None
- How has the community developed since the last report?
- How has the project developed since the last report?
+ How has the community developed since the last report?
+  a)  Various Slack channels and dev@ mailing lists are being used actively. New user support
and discussion forum created with the guidance of Apache members at:
+  b) O’Reilly  published a series of blogs about MXNet, including ones with step-by-step
instructions to implement a convolutional neural network to classify traffic signs with Apache
+  c)  A new blog post published on 28-July showing users how to exploit the unique features
of Apache MXNet with a cheat sheet:
+ d) New Blog series by Viacheslav Kovalevskyi on Apache MxNet in Depth published on Medium
+ e) Members of the community have conducted open meetups to share information on Apache MXNet:
+ f) Talks on Apache MXNet have been held in various universities and conferences across the
world including US, China, etc.:
+ g) Presently working towards an upcoming 0.12.0 release targeted for October or November
+ How has the project developed since the last report?
+ a) The code base was migrated from to
on 28-July, 2017. The website has also been migrated to this repository. 
+ b) From a statistics perspective, in July 2017, 54 authors pushed 140 commits to master,
with updates to 358 files including 22K additions and 3K deletions. In Sep 2017, 62 authors
pushed 171 commits to master, with updates to 467 files including 26K additions and 7K deletions.
+ c) Documentation- Architecture guides, How To’s, Tutorials, and APIs continue to be improved.
+ d) More features (e.g. operators, algorithms) and bug-fixes requested by the user community
continue to be added.
  How would you assess the podling's maturity?
+ Podling is still being established in Apache - hence maturity == Low, but the project has
a very diverse set of contributors.
  Please feel free to add your own commentary.
