It’s a short day this day, as Tuan and PJP needs to catch the flight in the afternoon.

We discussed for the budget of Fiscal Year 2018. For this year, we discussed the big events for the whole APAC region first. In this way, we keep a clear idea on the priority of events we need to have. Then we discussed for smaller events. Swags and DVDs are listed separately based on the actual amount of money we spend this year.

They decided to sponsor COSCUP again for Greater China. It’s great for the community in Taiwan. However, we even do not have any guaranteed budget for mainland China this year. I have to agree for cutting the event (Fedora Connect to Chinese University) down if there is not enough budget. It’s totally a WRONG idea to have no budget for mainland. Mainland China is a big area, even a trip for ambassadors to join some events costs more than USD $200. So how can I boost up other ambassadors in mainland China without any budget? And then how can the community grow?

We still have a lot of things to do for the community.  However, I will be starting working this month and there is certainly not enough time for me.  I wish we can have some new guys in the near future.

Report for Day 0 and Day 1 of FAD Kuala Lumpur 2016

Before the event, I hope someone else from Greater China can join the FAD there. So I send out many emails to other Fedora Ambassadors within CN and TW. However, none of them can join this FAD on site. So by the last day of registration,  I decide to join. My flight set off on [...]

Before the event, I hope someone else from Greater China can join the FAD there. So I send out many emails to other Fedora Ambassadors within CN and TW. However, none of them can join this FAD on site. So by the last day of registration,  I decide to join.

My flight set off on 5:00 AM. It is my first time to fly by AirAsiaX. Freezing cold on the flight!  By the time I landed in KLIA2, I decide to eat something then go by myself. It is fine until I get to KL Sentral. However, I am almost lost in KL Sentral as the LRT Ampang Line is out of service that day. It took me almost an hour finding the right bus station, which is of no use. Then I got message from Izhar. Izhar decided to pick me up from KL Sentral. And also mailed to the other attendees announcing the out of service of the line. Great thanks for Izhar!

I am the first one arrived at the hotel. So I just enjoyed a talk with Izhar on how we can make the community better before going to sleep ;)

So the first day starts a little late than planned. I am responsible for the logs in IRC channel, while Izhar handle the etherpad notes. We firstly reviewed the budget report of this year so far. Then we went through the pending tickets on fedora-apac trac. We closed some due to no updates for more than 2 years. By this time, I hope the guys to review the reimbursement guidelines. Reimbursement should happen within 2 weeks after the event. So if you really kept it for too long, Fedora can decide not to reimburse you.

We then discussed the issues this year. Of course we are allocated much less budget than we expected. So we went through the budget plan and cut some of the budget there. And when mentioning FUDCon APAC, we agreed that we really need it. And in order to save budget, we hope every FUDCon APAC happen in June so that we can share the flight tickets for FUDCon APAC and FAD APAC. We have discussions on having FUDCon biannually. Personally I think it is a good idea. At least better than the times we do not have any FUDCon for years. However, we still need to have a clear idea on how this should happen.

The discussions ended around 6 PM local time. Izhar’s family invited us to have meals in his home. It’s great time there.
