Subject Re: Stopping nightly releases to Pypi
Date Mon, 06 Jan 2020 18:19:52 GMT
Consider a user finds a bug in a nightly version but we can't narrow down the
version of mxnet used as the name is constant over time. Or users wan't to
revert back to the previous nightly version installed but don't know which date
it was from due to constant name.

Instead I suggest we introduce an autogenerated page like 
https://download.pytorch.org/whl/nightly/cu101/torch_nightly.html

Then "pip install -f URLTOPAGE mxnet" will install the latest available version.
Maybe the team maintaining the S3 bucket can reconsider creating such page for
the intermediate time until the CD based nighlty build is operating.
