Hi Anand,

Thanks for sharing the work and for offering to improve mxnet and ps-lite.

If you don't need to test the integration, you can
- fork dmlc/ps-lite
- make the changes
- send a pull request back to the repo, just as you would to mxnet

If you need to test the integration in mxnet first, you can
- fork both mxnet and ps-lite
- in your mxnet fork, switch the ps-lite to your own fork
- develop and test in your own forks
- once ready, send PR to ps-lite, followed by PR to mxnet.

Given that you intend to slice the gradients in to chunks and change the
order in which they are applied, I'm interested to see how you intend to
abstract them. If you have specific technical questions on either mxnet or
ps-lite, feel free to ask on github issues if that's easier for you.
