Subject Re: Maturity Model and Graduation
Date Fri, 05 Oct 2018 01:37:46 GMT
I started a draft assessment -
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/MXNET/Apache+Maturity+Model+Assessment+for+MXNet
based
on my personal view. Please keep in mind I'm new to the project and Apache
(just attended my first ApacheCon!!). The items I was not sure myself I
marked as "???".

Jim et all - looking for your guidance if the assessment should be
discussed further within PPMC, on private@ and next steps.
