As we are productive Saturday, we decide to start a little late today. So we arrived at the office by around 10 AM. Then we start by each ambassador introduce the community in their country. There is a outstanding problem is, reimbursement usually takes a long time. And some area have problems in receiving money by paypal. So we talked about having another credit card in APAC. And then we talks about DVD distribution in APAC. As of strict import/export laws in China, we are not able to take DVDs into China directly. So we still need to ask Red Hat guys to send DVDs into Red Hat Beijing by company way. And Sirko mentioned that someone need to raise request for combined media so that the engineer team will take into consideration. Otherwise they will not make any combined ISO.
When it comes to my turn, I introduces the status in China. Currently most of the problems in China are internal ( China only ) as we have quiet different regulations and laws here. My introduction is mostly based on the discussion with Gerard and others before. I raised the idea of “one pager”, that is, to make a simple guideline that can be fit into a A4 size paper, to make it easier for people to start using (or contributing to) Fedora. This idea seems to be interesting to many of the attendee, so maybe this should be the most important task for the coming fiscal year then. Then woohuiren from Singapore raised their problems in Singapore by IRC. As woohuiren is still new to Fedora, I talked with him by person. It seems that most of the problems in Singapore also exists in China. So I think we should share ideas more often so that it would be useful to both of us. Also I advise him to start with small points and I think it would be easier for him.
At last we also talked about the new Budget.next. We talked a lot about how we should do to fit the structure into APAC which is really useful for all of us. Then coming into the decision of the role Storyteller. It seems that tuan think I can help with that. I think I can handle that job but unfortunately I am graduating this year, so I just refused. Hope I may help more after I graduated.

It was a wonderful and really productive meeting. I really wish we can make local Fedora community improving in the coming year.

Recently I went to FAD Singapore 2015. As I did not find somewhere to buy a SIM card, it really took sometime to find the hostel on my arrival.
When I arrived at the hostel, it is amazing to find that one of their staff speaks Chinese. It really saves me a lot of time as I am not good at daily English.
Saturday we arrived at Red Hat APAC office by around 9 AM. The MRT station locates just under AXA building so it did not take us much time there.
The meeting starts with the topic on how to spread Fedora in APAC as well as how to have more contributors. We all agree that we should have more events so that we can have more oppotunity to introduce Fedora. Then we talked about media. Harish mentioned that we can have live USB by bring one get one. Personally I think it is a good idea. But I am not sure if guys in China are willing to exchange thumbdrive. And also I know there are many thumbdrive of poor quality so we really need to study whether this works or not in China.
Rest of the time we are discussing the budget for next fiscal year. During the discussion, we find that we are not always know how much left till the certain time point. And so we agree to improve the process and have better ideas what events are worthwhile. Also in order to make things cheaper, we decide to gather price of each swag so that we can have better ideas on central production of swag.
It is a productive day that we finished planning the budget for the next fiscal year within one day.
