Subject Re: [VOTE] Apache MXNet (incubating) 1.2.0 release RC2
Date Sat, 12 May 2018 00:35:11 GMT
Hi Justin,

We cannot just remove the documentation without modifying the original
repo, since it is a submodule.
I have opened an issue to googletest to see if it can be relicensed:
https://github.com/google/googletest/issues/1604
Is this acceptable for the release?

For issue 1 and 2, is the information being in README and API docs enough
or do we need to add a
warning for Creative commons license when script is launched ?
