A Flexible and Efficient Library for Deep Learning MXNet has been incubating since 2017-01-23. Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation: 1. Move the code and website to Apache Infrastructure. 2. Establish a formal release process and schedule, allowing for dependable release cycles in line with Apache development process. 3. Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of? PPMC to discuss adding in some community members who asked to join while the Incubator vote was in progress. How has the community developed since the last report? Project is still getting set up in Incubator. How has the project developed since the last report? Project is still getting set up, all proposed committers have submitted their ICLAs. How would you assess the podling's maturity? Please feel free to add your own commentary. [X] Initial setup [ ] Working towards first release [ ] Community building [ ] Nearing graduation [ ] Other: Date of last release: No Release yet When were the last committers or PPMC members elected? Project is being set up with the initial set of committers.

Previous conversations were Slack/GitHub-issue based, so making decisions on the email list will be the first likely adaptation. A dependency on ZeroMQ will be the primary discussion point for a first release at Apache. PPMC list is still low on subscriptions, with less than half of the PPMC members subscribed.
MXNet is an open-source deep learning framework that allows you to define, train, and deploy deep neural networks on a wide array of devices, from cloud infrastructure to mobile devices. It is highly scalable, allowing for fast model training, and supports a flexible programming model and multiple languages. MXNet has been incubating since 2017-01-23. Three most important issues to address in the move towards graduation: 1. Getting ICLAs signed/private@ populated. 2. Sharing documentation/mentor thoughts on being an Apache committer. 3. Migrating the code/issues over to Apache. Any issues that the Incubator PMC (IPMC) or ASF Board wish/need to be aware of? None How has the community developed since the last report? 1. This is our first report. 2. The mailing lists are created; with the dev@ list being well populated. 3. ICLAs are being signed. How has the project developed since the last report? 1. Trademark review seems complete. 2. A vendor, AWS, worked with Sally on a blog posting. Date of last release: No Apache release yet; still being setup. When were the last committers or PPMC members elected? At Proposal time. We have a few folk who asked to join the incubation proposal after the vote started and will be discussed once private@ is populated.  - https://aws.amazon.com/blogs/aws/excited-about-mxnet-joining-apache/ Signed-off-by: [X](mxnet) Henri Yandell [X](mxnet) Markus Weimer [X](mxnet) Sebastian Schelter [X](mxnet) Suneel Marthi Shepherd/Mentor notes: John D. Ament: I find it a bit odd that the linked article uses "MXNet" repeatedly but only refers to it as "Apache MXNet" once near the end of the page.
