I would like to propose a change on the MXNet Scala data_type:
Depreciate the `provideData` and `provideLabel` functions to provide `DataDesc`
type instead of `ListMap[String, Shape]` type.
There were several issues regarding to this since v0.12 on Scala. Several users

Thanks for looking into this Qing :)
this would alleviate the problems we have in getting RNNs to work in Scala.
Can we call name the new APIs `provideDataDesc` and `provideLabelDesc` ?

Hello, MXNet community,
Following up on recent announcement of office hours introduction from MXNet
Berlin team, we are trying to see if we can introduce some modifications to
that to make process a bit more streamlined and easier to track. Also, we are
trying to see how to scale that process
A minor suggestion: rename MXNet SDK to AWS MXNet SDK or Amazon MXNet SDK.

Sure. I will update the notes with the information.

Some mentors/contributors/committees feel that the amount of discussions in
dev list is too less given the amount of commits that happen and more
discussions need to happen in the dev list to grow the community.
In response some committees feel discussions actually happen in GitHub PRs.
Do any other Apache projects do this? Seems really odd. Jira was posting to
dev for maybe 3 days and people were complaining like crazy about the
noise, and that was just a few tickets. Now we’re talking about possibly
hundreds of emails per day. ALL PR comments, commit notificatios, issue
From the linked discussion thread you can find comments that Flink does and
Spark used to but not any more.
I don’t intend to claim anything on this vote thread, though one thing is
clear: without this change, github activity doesn’t count as happening per
apache standard, because it didn’t
I pulled up some more stats so we can make an informed decision.
Here are some popular Apache projects and the number of emails to their dev@
list in the last 30 days
Apache Flink: 540 mails
Apache Spark: 249 mails
Apache Hive: 481 mails
Apache HBase: 300 mails
Current dev list for MXNet: 348
Do you encounter that issue during building MXNet from source (including tests)
or on your own code/test? Three days ago I was successful to build master via
VS2017 with Intel MKL+MKLDNN support. If you have an own test/code which fails,
please pull request it into master.
You should explicitly tell potential contributors what you expect of them. Here
is what you document:
There is nothing there that tells contributors to discuss proposals on dev

While I do agree that the GitHub issue triaging should be improved,
possibly by moving more user discussions to the discuss forum/user list. I
already see there is a good effort on triaging the issues.
I do think forwarding GitHub activities are a good first step to make

As a MXNet contributor, I had issues and took me some time on getting
hands-on with MXNet codebase, being able to code, test, DEBUG python/CPP
combination. I have documented the steps for MXNet development setup using
VSCode on Mac. Document starts from installing all required
Thanks for the well-written document! As a new MXNet developer, I have
found it very helpful.

This is tangential, but Lin, I noticed during the RC1 tests you said you tried
it out on Windows and it worked for you. I'd like to get VS2017 or VS Code
working, take Sandeep's setup content and possibly your Windows experience, and
improve the MXNet Windows setup guide. I've tried it and

seems more like a strategy (whether intentional or on accident) to *not*
have design discussions on dev by flooding it with noise and then later
claim it was discussed, even though you would have to sift through
thousands of emails to find it.

Can't you simply tell contributors to discuss changes on dev before submitting
a PR? Since the contribution guidelines don't tell developers to post to dev,
why would you expect them to do that?
Is there an easy way to just subscribe to PR notifications or will someone have
to write a filter
to know about github discussions, you’d need to scan all issues and prs
constantly which isn’t a reasonable expectation. dev is where discussions
are supposed to happen in a apache, PERIOD.
Apache isn’t dmlc. I wish some people would stop trying to turn Apache
conventions into dmlc conventions.
Being Apache is about being inclusive to the new contributors. Apache
encourages the use of Github, and currently, the community is doing so.
I don't think it is a good idea to use political terms to force proliferate
our contributors --- we are all Apache contributors. Instead, we should
A discussion is a discussion, and in the case of MXNet I’d say a lot more high
quality discussion has happened on GitHub than on dev@. Github issues have
plenty of discussions before code change. The reason is simply because MXNet
has longer history on Github than the existence of dev list, and
Thanks, I hear the concerns and it's not my intention to push people off

Discussions happened on Github are highly valuable, as a matter of fact, we
have quite a lot of proliferating contributors who discuss things on
GitHub when they contribute.
We need to be inclusive to these contributors, to welcome and recognize

To make it easier to find the discussions related to project proposals I
added a column with a link to the thread on dev@ for most projects.
Appreciate for the project owners to fill in the blanks and to check that I
got the right threads.

Thanks for picking this issue.
How would multiple inputs/labels be handled? By name or by position?
Recently I faced issue in Python where name of the input symbol name was
not used, but, position was used. Python2 reads list from 0 and Python3
reads list from last element.
I think this should be called MXNet Office hours and in a subsection spell
what is supported now(expectation)? Amazon contributors could lead part of
the effort? and later have other interested contributors join this effort.

Maybe we can start a different thread to discuss about MXNet build on
Windows? I have tried it myself on a GPU instances built on Windows DLAMI
10.0. I would love to share with you my setup steps.
Thanks Sandeep for putting this together, it would make it easy for people
who prefer to IDEs to get started with MXNet easily.

Can't people already subscribe to github notifications? I think it is safe to
assume that developers are already smart enough to figure out how to do that if
they want. What problem are you really trying to solve here?
