04:08:13 <dramsey> We are in "#topic Report current Status of upcoming events "
04:08:18 <dramsey> Good to see you.
04:08:24 <dramsey> Any news?
04:08:43 <bckurera> i have to say about FADSL
04:08:59 <bckurera> we still dont fix a date
04:09:09 <bckurera> still we are discussing with the universities
04:09:12 <dramsey> Okay.
04:09:17 <bckurera> thereare two main unis in Colombo
04:09:18 <dramsey> Are you looking at March?
04:09:29 <bckurera> so sings seems its getting late
04:09:39 <bckurera> may be we can do it after the F15 release
04:09:43 <dramsey> Understood, we try to support you.
04:09:44 <bckurera> I think that would be better
04:09:52 <dramsey> F15 is early May...I think
04:10:00 <bckurera> i m trying to do it with less funds
04:10:08 <bckurera> so i dont want to pay for locations
04:10:17 <bckurera> if we discuss with unis we can get them free
04:10:24 <bckurera> that is why i m going to do
04:10:35 <bckurera> if FAD is going away
04:10:37 <dramsey> bckurera, sounds like you need support.
04:10:40 <bckurera> i mean like after March
04:10:48 <dramsey> Right, March
04:10:53 <bckurera> i think we need to something small befre that
04:11:11 <dramsey> bckurera, don't be shy if you need something...one must ask in order to receive.
04:11:14 <bckurera> that is what I am thinking of
04:11:25 <bckurera> yes dear
04:11:28 <bckurera> i m nt shy
04:11:34 <bckurera> the reason is getting a location
04:11:35 <dramsey> +1
04:11:42 <bckurera> for that I need to discuss with Unis
04:11:48 <bckurera> there Fedora cant help :)
04:12:05 <bckurera> dont worry I ll give my fullest effort to get a place
04:12:08 <dramsey> Swag and/or OLPC or other things may help?
04:12:13 <bckurera> after that we can do the rest easily
04:12:19 <dramsey> Okay
04:12:29 <bckurera> yup sure those things should be created
04:12:30 <bckurera> too
04:12:39 <bckurera> and I m busy with APAC wear these days
04:12:45 <bckurera> wanna finalize that too
04:12:45 <bckurera> :)
04:12:53 <bckurera> I ll talk abt that later then
04:13:03 <dramsey> Okay.
04:13:06 <dramsey> Other thoughts or next topic?
04:13:23 <bckurera> Is there any future event in APAC
04:13:37 <bckurera> i saw some event from Philipines
04:14:04 <dramsey> Yes, Heherson...
04:14:20 <dramsey> Also, from arifiauo --> (13:04:42) arifiauo: There is KPLI meeting next 26-27 February
04:14:20 <dramsey> (13:05:00) dramsey: Cool arifiauo, is there an event with that, too?
04:14:20 <dramsey> (13:06:35) arifiauo: Yes, we discuss and plan what next to do. Maybe for release party.

04:15:04 <arifiauo> Hi bckurera :)
04:15:26 <bckurera> ok then we can move i think
04:15:32 <dramsey> Okay.
04:15:33 <dramsey> Other thoughts or next topic?
04:15:40 <dramsey> #topic APAC plans
04:15:50 <dramsey> :)  I hope to see a Fudcon Brisbane in the next year for APAC.  What do you think?  :)
04:16:10 <dramsey> Tomorrow is my biweekly Tokyo Fedora 14 give-aways...
04:16:10 <bckurera> why Brisbane always
04:16:18 <arifiauo> +1
04:16:32 <dramsey> I think there is a Red Hat office there, my thought is two fold...
04:16:37 <bckurera> it is better if we can get it somewhere like
04:16:38 <dramsey> Sort of a carry-over from the FAD...
04:16:42 <bckurera> Malaysia
04:16:43 <dramsey> Sounds good!
04:16:53 <bckurera> hen we all can attend easily
04:16:59 <dramsey> May be FAD first...then follow-up with Fudcon.
04:17:03 <dramsey> We can do it! :)
04:17:04 <bckurera> flying Aus is moree Expensive
04:17:11 <arifiauo> +1
04:17:20 <dramsey> Let a proposal be created.
04:17:23 <dramsey> I support all ideas!"
04:17:26 <dramsey> :D
04:17:34 <arifiauo> :)
04:17:39 <bckurera> it is nt worth if we (APAC)cant go there
04:17:55 <bckurera> having FUDcon in a feasable country will give us more exposure
04:17:59 <dramsey> #idea Proposal for FUDcon
04:18:16 <dramsey> bckurera, you can do it!!!  :D
04:18:28 <bckurera> #idea Proposal for FUDcon in Malaysia, Singapore
04:18:32 <dramsey> +1
04:18:37 <arifiauo> +1
04:18:38 <bckurera> we can discuss with FAm there
04:18:48 <dramsey> Singapore has potential...Harish is there!
04:19:00 <dramsey> Absolutely, others will review our logs!
04:19:03 <bckurera> that the best i think
04:19:18 <bckurera> If you can start a coversation that would be better
04:19:25 <dramsey> Me, too!  If we get people thinking then action will follow
04:19:29 <bckurera> thanks for the support dramsey
04:19:30 <dramsey> I agree
04:19:49 <bckurera> Is there any time frame
04:20:15 <dramsey> I think proposal for next year is reasonable to suggest now.
04:20:25 <bckurera> AND the data shows there are
04:20:39 <bckurera> 11 Malasians and 5 singapores
04:20:47 <bckurera> FAm in those countries
04:20:53 <bckurera> so what else we need
04:20:53 <bckurera> :)
04:21:03 <bckurera> Ok then we start proposing
04:21:08 <dramsey> +1
04:21:19 <dramsey> arifiauo, do you need any support?
04:21:25 <dramsey> bckurera, do you need any support?
