Re: [RESULT][LAZY VOTE] Next MXNet release

2018-11-07 Thread Sheng Zha
Reporting back on this thread, I received feedbacks with some valid
concerns:
- There are different parties that are already working toward the
previously communicated timeline.
- It creates a hassle for people.

Although I'd love to see the release happening soon, let's keep the
existing timeline. Next time when a release happens, we can consider
releasing multiple versions at the same time with more thought and
coordination.

+1 to trying to get a 1.4.0 Nov release.  I think the MKLDNN work alone is
a headline feature that users would love to get their hands on.

Re: [RESULT][LAZY VOTE] Next MXNet release

2018-11-06 Thread Sheng Zha
I'd like to propose that we expedite the 1.4.0 release slightly as there
doesn't seem to be a rule that prevents a minor release from happening at
the same time of a patch release. This would shorten the time it takes for
new features to reach users. Proposed revision to the timeline:
- Code freeze: 11/9
- Release published: 11/22

If there's no issue about both the proposal and new timeline, I'd be happy
to manage 1.4.0 release as release manager.

[RESULT][LAZY VOTE] Next MXNet release

2018-11-01 Thread Steffen Rochel
There have been no objections, so lazy vote passed.
Anton volunteered to manage the 1.3.1 release and Naveen will support him
as co-manager to handle the release tasks requiring committer powers.
Please support Anton for a smooth 1.3.1 release process.

I'm still looking for volunteers to manage / co-manage the 1.4.0 release.

Regards,
Steffen
