Hi Jerry. While I appreciate that having an implementation available
on Github for evaluation purposes is rather more permissive than most
IP vendors, I think it's misleading to call it "open source". The
SYMPL license (https://github.com/jerry-D/SYMPL-GP-GPU-Compute-Engines/blob/master/LICENSE.txt)
is nowhere close to conforming to the Open Source Definition
<https://opensource.org/osd-annotated>. You might consider using
different wording.
