Subject Re: Rcpp licensing in Apache MXNet

Awesome - Rcpp11 is MIT license.

Would Rcpp be up for relicensing or would Rcpp11 be have in the roadmap required features
to match Rcpp?

Actually, would you need help for Rcpp11? :)

Hi, I am also in the Rcpp core team.

Rcpp11 is a reimplementation of Rcpp using C++ 11 features. However, it
lacks some features we used in MXNet R pacakge.

Best,

KK
