Subject Re: Pre-release versions on website

I have mentioned this before and I still think that the default MXNet webpage must match the
default version that is installed when someone issues "pip install mxnet". - Sina

    Hi Aaron,
    I think it'd be a good idea to create pip packages for the release
    candidates. Sheng, would it be possible to incorporate this into your build
    pipeline? In my opinion, we shouldn't advertise the RCs not too much on our
    website, so I'd say we could skip #2. #3 in combination with #1 sounds like
    a good idea.
    In the meantime, we could just patch the install page for 1.2.0 and a big
    red warning message that states that this a release candidate and that the
    publish process is ongoing. This way, we can let the 1.2.0 website stay up
    and also avoid confusion. WDYT?
