Formal board meeting minutes from 2010 through present. Please Note: The board typically approves minutes from one meeting during the next board meeting, so minutes will be published roughly one month later than the scheduled date. Other corporate records are published, as is an alternate categorized view of all board meeting minutes.

MXNet

15 Mar 2017

Report was filed, but display is awaiting the approval of the Board minutes.

27 Feb 2017

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[1].

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.

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.
