Subject RE: summary of 5/29 v1.2 post mortem & next release brainstorming call
Date Thu, 31 May 2018 02:19:38 GMT
Hi  Steffen,

It's a good meetup and it's pity I missed to join.

Regarding the proposal of 1.3, we (Intel team) want to add two items into the list. 
Please help take a review:

1) fused RNN operators for CPU (GRU/LSTM/vRNN)
    Lead contributor : Patric Zhao (https://github.com/pengzhao-intel/), Lv Tao (https://github.com/TaoLv)
    Design Proposal,  https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/MXNET/Fused+RNN+Operators+for+CPU
    BTW, LSTM is already merged, GRU is under the review.

2) distributed training by MPI AllReduce
    Lead contributor : Patric Zhao (https://github.com/pengzhao-intel/), Ye zhouhai (https://github.com/threeleafzerg)
    Design Proposal, https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/MXNET/Extend+MXNet+Distributed+Training+by+MPI+AllReduce
    BTW, we enabled the distributed training for awslabs/sockeye and the PR will be submitted
soon.
    Discussion in here (https://github.com/awslabs/sockeye/issues/397)

Feel free to let me know for any feedback and suggestions :)

BR,

--Patric

>    details
>       - https://github.com/apache/incubator-mxnet/pull/8949
>    - Anton: need to refine process for patch release (i.e. refinement of Release
>    Versioning and Branching
> 
> <https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/MXNET/Release+Versioning+and
> +Branching>
> )
>    - how and who decides about patch release
>    - monthly call: yes (Haibin, Anton, Wolfram Research)
> 
> 
> I summarized the calls as well here
