Subject RE: call for contributions to next MXNet release
Date Sun, 11 Mar 2018 13:43:39 GMT
Steffen, really thanks for the helps and I totally agree with you and Marco's suggestions.

I will summarize the open issues and status for the review soon.

> What is your github handle?
Github ID:  Patric Zhao, https://github.com/pengzhao-intel/     Da Zheng, https://github.com/zheng-da/

Design doc:  https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/MXNET/The+design+of+MKLDNN+integration
It's a good suggestion for the full MKL package and we will add the related part in the doc.

> - do you have performance measurements (or plan to measure) to include in
> release notes?
Yes, we have tested the performance on all C4/C5 instances (8x,4x,2x,xlarge,large). And the
accuracy are verified as well.
We plan to publish these data both in the release note and mxnet website (https://mxnet.incubator.apache.org/faq/perf.html).
  
> - should we talk about the package at the Apr 24th meetup in Seattle?
We're based in Shanghai, China; so maybe @Da Zheng?
