Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache MXNet(incubating) version 1.2.0.RC1
Date Wed, 02 May 2018 10:56:27 GMT
For me the situation with DMLC is problematic.

I often find myself having to fix things in the DMLC subrepos.

* These changes are impossible to test with the MXNet CI system without
doing shenanigans like changing the submodules to my own forks.
* Slows down development as fixes need to be merged on the DMLC subrepo
first, then MXNet updated with the new subrepo commit, effectively doubling
the turnaround time for any fix / commit.
* The DMLC subrepos are in a different organization and subject to
different set of committers and rules.

I think we should have a plan forward to have MXNet be more self contained,
so it's faster and easier to contribute.

Pedro.
