Denis Davydenko updated MXNET-1225:
    Sprint: Scala/Java 9 (11/19-12/3)

> Update Scala Install instructions
> ---------------------------------
>                 Key: MXNET-1225
>                 URL:
>             Project: Apache MXNet
>          Issue Type: Story
>          Components: Apache MXNet Scala API
>            Reporter: Denis Davydenko
>            Priority: Major
> Current Scala Install instructions for building it from Source (not for Maven download)
are not very easy to follow, they require navigating to multiple pages and figuring out how
to build and stitch multiple pieces together to make it work. Also there are multiple paths
users could end up following in order to build Scala from source. One of them could lead users
to the trap that we experienced while building Scala from source for performance testing.
The trap, in more details, pertains to instructions to build MXNet from source where there
is no copying params into file. As a result – MXNet could be built with OpenBLAS
but consequent Scala package build won’t have file to use and thus won’t have
same set of params that were used during MXNet build (namely – it could miss USE_BLAS=OPENBLAS
flag and thus build Scala package without it, exactly the trap we experienced). Please update
Build from Source instructions to ensure this trap path is avoided.
