Package: sponsorship-requests
Severity: wishlist

Dear mentors,

  I am looking for a sponsor for my package "highwayhash"

 * Package name    : mkl-dnn
   Version         : 0.13~20180406-ga5f6077-1
   Upstream Author : Intel
 * URL             :
 * License         : apache-2.0
   Section         : science

MKL-DNN stands for "math kernel lib for deep neural network". I think this
library will be used in more and more machine learning / deep learning
software in the future.

The package locates at the master branch here:

It was successfully built on DoM-amd64.

Here are some notes on this package:

1. Architecture: amd64

    This is suggested by upstream (Intel). There are ports to other
architectures but they are not officially supported by upstream.

2. what's the relation between MKL and this MKL-DNN?

    MKL-DNN is independent to MKL. MKL-DNN can be built with or
without MKL. When linked against MKL, MKL-DNN would get a performance
boost. Functionality won't be influenced if not linked against MKL.

3. why do you upload such a snapshot instead of a regular release?

    The regular release 0.13 has a bug when working in Xen. That bug
is fixed in this snapshot.
