+1 Both GitHub issues and dev@ are aimed for development-related topics. It will be great if we could have a all-in-one place for discussion, and I believe Sheng's proposal is the answer. On 2018/07/16 03:32:06, Sheng Zha wrote: > Hi, > > I'm starting a vote on subscribing dev@ to Github

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 people aware of what is

You should explicitly tell potential contributors what you expect of them. Here is what you document: https://github.com/apache/incubator-mxnet/blob/master/docs/community/contribute.md There is nothing there that tells contributors to discuss proposals on dev first. It sounds like that needs

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 make

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.

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

Hi Anirudh, 1. You need exactly one filter to filter out all the github notifications on PRs and issues: "from:notificati...@github.com", and you'd get your S/N ratio back. 2. Having the option to do design discussion on an issue or PR is actually a good thing as many discussions are quite small
