Subject Re: [VOTE] Release Apache MXNet (incubating) version 1.6.0.rc0
Date Fri, 27 Dec 2019 15:37:50 GMT
In case of backporting #17012, also 
https://github.com/apache/incubator-mxnet/pull/17098 must be backported. The
updated OpenMP added a new target which is not used by MXNet but breaks the
build on some systems with nvptx. #17098 disables building this unused and
broken feature.
