Subject Re: [Proposal] Apache TVM
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2019 17:56:14 GMT
Thanks everyone for the discussion thus far. Based on it, I have uploaded
an updated proposal here:

https://wiki.apache.org/incubator/TVMProposal

The changes made are:

   1. Rectify the language around PMC vs. PMC member. Thanks Greg, for
   pointing that out!
   2. Adding Furkan, Timothy and Henry as additional mentors. We can use
   all the help :)

Assuming there are no further discussion points, I'd like to move forward
with a [VOTE]. I'll let this sit here and simmer for another 24h to make
sure we are done with the discussion phase.

Thanks,

Markus
