I researched Apache Incubator Projects to find most similar project to
MXNet and found weex [1] which has these similar properties:

Several expertise: Java, JavaScript, Objective-C, C++, Objective-C++.
High revolutionary commits and issues: [2] [3].
High number of concurrent contributors: [2] ( ~ 1/4 MXNet).

Although it isn't as hard to manage as MXNet but I found these very
helpful and good things there:

- They have been disabled GitHub issues but use Pull Request with JIRA.
- They have contribution protocols [4] (e.g. how PR JIRA connection).
- They have defined How to Contribute [5] Bug Report Guidelines [6] and
Development Process [7].

Additionally, with a lot of thanks to your keyword "Kanban-board", I
found following hopeful amazing things about JIRA:

* Learn kanban with Jira software [8].
* Learn how to create agile boards in Jira Software [9].
* JIRA: Monitoring work in a Kanban project [10].
* What is kanban? [11].

I'm new to these and MXNet and firstly I was planned to have code
contributions, but now, it will be my honor and motivation if you @dev
have time to let me research these and come back with good setup and
docs in a timely manner. Or we can also ask in @dev if anyone has such
experiences and can bring us such setup and docs customized to MXNet.

Warm Regards.
