Subject RE: assimilation of mshadow into the MXNet codebase
Date Fri, 24 Jul 2020 06:14:26 GMT
Hi Justin,

We're doing 1.7.0 source release recently, and the vote on dev@ was passed, vote thread [1],
result thread[2].
Seems the discussion on mshadow donation is still not finalized, may I know if you have any
concern to proceed the current release under DISCLAIMER-WIP?

No, I don’t think we used ICLAs for mshadow before.

Out of the 42 people who made more than 1 commit or more than 10 lines of code change to mshadow,
26 signed ICLA with Apache (and additionally one member is unfortunately deceased...). Would
this be a better criteria as “the major ones”? I wasn’t part of the initial code donation
or the initial PPMC group, so apologies if the questions were silly.

I think the rest of the commits are manageable so that I could do a revert and rework for
those commits if/when necessary.

eric.xie, sxjscience, mli, yajiedesign [1]. If you think this is OK, one of the mentors or
I can start the notification.

comfortable with. You need to be able to account for the IP provenance of every line of code,
just like in your initial code donation. It would probably be best to make a list all contributors
and if they have an ICLA or not. Did the mshadow project use ICLAs? If so that may also help.
