04:10:37 <tuanta> yes, I know, harish. thanks for your support to APAC
04:11:01 <bckurera> harish, is there any confirmation on air tickets purchasing using credit cards?
04:11:29 <zerng07> hi, everyone. :)
04:11:49 <tuanta> hi zerng07
04:11:52 <bckurera> are we safe to buy our own or let organizers to buy them for us?
04:11:53 <harish> i am dependent on those who are local to the cities to tell me that it is ok. thus far it seems to be ok for the purchaser's credit card not being present at boarding time.

04:46:21 <bckurera> #link https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-apac/ticket/23
04:47:04 <bckurera> harish I need a clarification here !
04:47:24 <harish> go ahead
04:47:32 <bckurera> Is there a fix amount/budget for APAC for FY2013 ?
04:48:14 <bckurera> I think it is good to have an understanding on this when we support funding requests.
04:48:58 <harish> there is a budget for all of Fedora premium. The portion for APAC is slightly less than that for the last FY
04:49:34 <harish> robyn is working on a streamlined budgetting process and i am helping her with that as well.
04:50:07 <bckurera> that means we dont have a fixed number yet, am I right Harish?
04:50:55 <inode0> !
04:51:14 <harish> there is a fixed number. let me work with robyn to announce it.
04:51:22 <harish> inode0, go ahead
04:51:33 <bckurera> yes please inode0
04:51:59 <inode0> I was just going to say that we have not worked with fixed numbers for each region in the past - we have a fixed total that we share as needed
04:52:28 <inode0> I don't know if that is changing this year or not
04:52:46 <harish> inode0, that is what it is. there isn't a fixed regional amount
04:52:58 <harish> it is an overall fedora premium/regional support amount.
04:54:01 <bckurera> thanks for the clarification harish
04:54:40 <bckurera> please do announce the total amount available for funding when things get finalized.
04:54:59 <bckurera> Then shall we wind-up
04:55:07 <bckurera> almost had a meeting of 1 hour
04:55:18 <harish> +1
