Hi Michael, 

Could you please guide how to proceed with this? Given that we have a 
possibility of announcing MXNet support in Horovod with their next release and 
this would help MXNet increase our visibility.

Thanks,
Qing

    Team,
    
    Here is my read on the situation.  The vote has been canceled.  Justin's
    point was that a -1 doesn't mean you must cancel a vote for the reasons he
    outlined.  But here the vote needs to be restarted and the issue Luciano
    found needs to be addressed.
    
    That issue is that there are files in MXNet source tree that do not have
    the required licenses headers,
    http://www.apache.org/legal/release-policy.html#license-headers.  For
    example, the top level README.md is missing the header
    https://raw.githubusercontent.com/apache/incubator-mxnet/master/README.md.
    Excluding 3rd party files from the RAT check is fine, but not files
    originating from the MXNet repo.
    
    It would be good to know exactly how Luciano ran the RAT check, cc'd.  Here
    is a link to the thread
    
https://lists.apache.org/thread.html/51e9ab05edae2089c74a253000a92d5aa5c6406f54e5bd0a0b3c3879@%3Cgeneral.incubator.apache.org%3E
    .
    
    Justin's other point, aIso cc'd, was that the vote with the podling doesn't
    have to take 72 hours before going to the incubator list.
    
    I realize this is not what everyone is pushing for, so interested in
    other's thoughts.  Especially other mentors.
    
    Mike
