Dear @Stan_Development_Team ,
I am calling out for a voting procedure starting today (April 12th, 2021) and lasting for two weeks on the adjoint ODE design doc which you can find here. This means that the voting period ends on Monday April the 26th 2021. The final result will then be available on April 27th. Please vote for
- reject the design PR in its current form
- accept the design PR as is
I would appreciate any rationale for rejecting should you vote for that option. This would help to improve the document for a second run.
I am tagging anyone coming to my mind who have known ODE background or have been involved in some way in this PR so far.
Also tagging @martinmodrak who suggested voting. As I understood we usually go for an “alert” period for a vote for an entire week first… given that I have been calling out for feedback many times on the PR, I am jump-starting this process somewhat. In addition we had a full month during May for an experimental phase of the feature during which I called for feedback on the prototype. As such I think there has been plenty time and visibility of the topic.
I will cross-post this call for vote on discourse, but the process itself should only happen as comments on the PR.
Many thanks everyone!
The PR is accepted if a majority (>50%) of votes go for option 2. Please cast your vote by noting the numeric option 1 or 2 which you prefer. People having been part of this PR are eligible to vote or those reading into the doc and have solid knowledge/experience with ODEs in Stan.
