Re: [QUESTION] Release Apache MXNet (incubating) version 1.4.1.rc0

2019-05-08 Thread Hen
Thanks Sheng. I assume MNIST covers all 5 data files.

Given that's a license with stronger conditions than the Apache license, I
think the example should give a canonical URL for the data (i.e. a homepage
of some kind) and mention the CC-BY-SA-3.0 licensing.

MNIST dataset is under CC BY-SA 3.0 and is widely redistributed.

[QUESTION] Release Apache MXNet (incubating) version 1.4.1.rc0

2019-05-08 Thread Hen
Looking at
apache-mxnet-src-1.4.1.rc0-incubating/cpp-package/example/get_data.sh -
what's the license on the data that is being pulled in?

Namely:

"
https://apache-mxnet.s3-accelerate.dualstack.amazonaws.com/gluon/dataset/mnist/train-images-idx3-ubyte.gz
"
"
https://apache-mxnet.s3-accelerate.dualstack.amazonaws.com/gluon/dataset/mnist/train-labels-idx1-ubyte.gz
"
"
https://apache-mxnet.s3-accelerate.dualstack.amazonaws.com/gluon/dataset/mnist/t10k-images-idx3-ubyte.gz
"
"
https://apache-mxnet.s3-accelerate.dualstack.amazonaws.com/gluon/dataset/mnist/t10k-labels-idx1-ubyte.gz
"
"http://data.mxnet.io/data/mnist_train.csv.gz;

Thanks,

Hen

Re: [DISCUSS] 1.5.0 Release Plan

2019-05-08 Thread Anirudh Subramanian
Hi Sheng,

I had a discussion with nvidia folks offline today (@ptrendx et. al.). I
strongly feel that the AMP feature should be included as part of the
release: https://github.com/apache/incubator-mxnet/pull/14173 .
The PR is aimed for completion for next week but reviews and RFC
discussions may take some time. I would request to extend the release code
freeze by 2 weeks.
Also, I would like to include
https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/MXNET/Conversion+from+FP32+to+Mixed+Precision+Models
which
depends on the AMP PR.
I am also aiming for adding a PR by this week end or early next week, but
reviews will take longer than May 17th.
