Subject Re: MXNet 1.6.0 release
Date Sat, 02 Nov 2019 03:11:55 GMT
Dear MXNet Community,

This morning I updated the 1.6.x branch and so the code freeze is in effect. I would like
to thank everyone who helped in preparing and reviewing pull requests to meet this deadline.

Unfortunately, nightly tests do not currently pass (I created an issue about this: [1]). Another
issue [2] was raised to my attention as potential release blocker. Please help in fixing those
issues and also tag me on other issues that you believe must be fixed before release.

Thank you

we decided to go with a "soft" code freeze approach. Only the PRs that are in the scope of
1.6 release will now be accepted into 1.6.x branch. The hard code freeze is planned next week,
Oct 31st.

I would like to call for action for the rest of the MXNet Community to test, raise issues
and fix the bugs in the release.

As it will be the first time for me to manage a release, Sam (samskalicky) and Lin (apeforest)
agreed to help guiding me through the process.
