    Why don't they use GitHub or GitLab?

      There is conditions to be on AMD open-source portals, obviously AMD specific.

        I don't know, AMD is a bit too adamant branding everything "Infinity" so close to the conclusion of Avengers. Clearly some ulterior motives are in play :P

          AFAIK this is a collection of containers built from open source software - I think of containers as binary rather than source...

          ... and that's why we are not using GitHub/GitLab or similar.

            The overhead of global trademark review/approval is probably a big factor.

            I suspect we have projects where the design/implementation/test effort was less than the naming effort.

              The email I received from Edelmann this morning about it was titled "AMD Infinity Hub: All-in-one portal for HPC open-source software" And further noted it being for open-source software in the email body. Let me know if I should forward you over the email if there is some confusion somewhere along the route.

                I hope this idea works out, ROCm is in theory capable to do a lot of things, but currently it is very complicated to make them work.

                  AMD still needs to work on the "hassle-free" side of things to get ROCm going. Docker might be a means for HPC users, but we end-users are still confronted with a mess when it comes to installing and using ROCm (on supported consumer hardware such as my Vega 56).
