04:33:23 <dramsey> Eyo bckurera...
04:33:26 <arifiauo> hi bckurera
04:33:26 <bckurera> sorry for the late
04:33:32 <bckurera> had some problems with the client
04:33:33 <bckurera> :)
04:33:37 <dramsey> bckurera we are at APAC plans...
04:33:40 <bckurera> H i all
04:33:40 <tuanta> understood, bckurera
04:33:42 <bckurera> good morning
04:33:45 <suresht> bckurera, hi
04:33:46 <bckurera> .fas bckurera
04:33:46 <zodbot> bckurera: bckurera 'Buddhika Kurera' <bckurera@gmail.com>
04:34:10 <dramsey> Any news to help us, bckurera - Sri Lanka FAD, shirts, media needs?
04:34:16 <tuanta> +1 KageSenshi
04:34:21 <bckurera> yes
04:34:30 <bckurera> there is a problem with media
04:34:41 <bckurera> costom charging lot on media
04:34:46 <dramsey> Ey
04:34:51 <bckurera> and it is hard to collect from them too
04:34:55 <tuanta> I see bckurera :)
04:34:59 <dramsey> bckurera, who/where did the media come from?
04:34:59 <bckurera> Harish recently sent me 100 CDs
04:35:03 <tuanta> same here, in Vietnam
04:35:05 <dramsey> Oh no...
04:35:26 <bckurera> paying that money and all, we can produce DVD for that in SL
04:35:42 <dramsey> Understood bckurera.
04:35:45 <dramsey> tuanta, did kaio help with the customs problem for you?
04:35:57 <bckurera> so I was creating a plan (a documentation) over the situtation
04:36:00 <bckurera> to produce them locally
04:36:13 <dramsey> I think "local" production for tuanta, bckurera, and suresht is best.
04:36:17 <bckurera> Main problem is Harish sending them on FedEx
04:36:33 <bckurera> It is too costly
04:36:43 <tuanta> import tax is more than producing discs locally :)
04:36:45 <dramsey> bckurera, please make sure that both harish and kaio understand.
04:36:47 <suresht> bckurera, normal post would be fine a little
04:37:06 <bckurera> yes suresht
04:37:07 <suresht> bckurera, i hope
04:37:11 <bckurera> normal post is quite ok
04:37:20 <dramsey> bckurera and tuanta, your ideas are best for your situation.  I agree 100%
04:37:23 <bckurera> i will do it dramsey for sure
04:37:29 <bckurera> I need to contact harish and kiao
04:37:30 <dramsey> +1 bckurera.
04:37:40 <tuanta> +1 bckurera
04:37:45 <dramsey> tuanta, was Fedora able to help with the customs cost for you?
04:37:47 <bckurera> then i am looking forwad to investigate the prices in Sri Lanka and find a good producer
04:38:00 <bckurera> The thing is this dramsey
04:38:12 <bckurera> we can refun the tax from fedora
04:38:24 <bckurera> but finally it cost for fedors then that is the use
04:38:40 <bckurera> so paying the costom fee is so unfare
04:38:47 <tuanta> yes, I think Fedora can help but I prefer producing locally
04:39:09 <suresht> bckurera, not only cds but too Road Notice,fedora posters,balloons,pens and strictors
04:39:35 <bckurera> i have no experince with other swags
04:39:36 <bckurera> :)
04:39:44 <bckurera> AND FOR FAD SL
04:39:53 <bckurera> i was discussing with university of Colombo
04:40:01 <bckurera> it seems we can get some room there
04:40:10 <tuanta> +1 bckurera
04:40:12 <bckurera> i m planing for the F15 release
04:40:18 <suresht> after get local sponsorship we will confirm
04:40:20 <tuanta> +1 bckurera
04:40:22 <dramsey> Understood bckurera +1
04:40:29 <bckurera> and I saw dramsey's test days
04:40:35 <bckurera> great work dramsey
04:40:41 <tuanta> +1 bckurera
04:40:44 <tuanta> :)
04:40:45 <dramsey> bckurera and tuanta, I am sure that harish and kaio want to make sure you both are taken care of.
04:40:58 <dramsey> Thank you bckurera, new stuff is fun.
04:41:08 <bckurera> yes I m bothering about the quality firt
04:41:13 <bckurera> you know with quality
04:41:17 <bckurera> the price change
04:41:31 <bckurera> optimum results from both end is quite difficult
04:41:36 <dramsey> I understand and support "produce" locally, we must make sure FAmSCo understands our situations.
04:41:37 <bckurera> but we will do our best
04:41:47 <dramsey> +1 bckurera
04:41:58 <suresht> bckurera, +1
04:42:14 <bckurera> I m little busy these days due to exams
04:42:14 <tuanta> I believe that they (FAmSCo) already known, dramsey

04:43:16 <dramsey> #info FAmSCo to understand tuanta 'Tuan' and bckurera issues related to "imported" media versus locally produced.

04:44:18 <tuanta> with me, just Fedora is enough
04:44:25 <tuanta> whatever code name :)
04:44:27 <bckurera> great tuanta
04:44:36 <bckurera> just mentioned
04:44:51 <tuanta> yes, I see, bckurera
04:45:12 <tuanta> I have heard about that code name
04:45:13 <bckurera> so we r in APAC plan
04:45:27 <tuanta> ok, next
04:45:27 <dramsey> Yup, other thoughts or next topic?
04:45:40 <bckurera> I have to raise a point there
04:45:43 <tuanta> how about Ambassador Wear, bckurera
04:45:49 <dramsey> Go for it, bckurera
04:45:54 <bckurera> what is the status of events in APAC
04:46:16 <bckurera> due to world cup producing our order got little late
04:46:24 <bckurera> I am getting them at the end of this month
04:46:39 <suresht> bckurera, +1
04:46:55 <bckurera> Is there any Fudcon or FAD is happening in APAC??
04:46:59 <tuanta> I always update all events and reports onto Fedora Events page
04:47:22 <bckurera> what are our plans for the next 7 months of the year?
04:47:38 <tuanta> not many ones, I see
04:47:43 <bckurera> What are our plans for F15 release?
04:47:47 <tuanta> just local events
04:47:53 <dramsey> good question, we may hear what is in harish's mind as well as gbraad's kaio's within FAmSCo
04:48:08 <dramsey> Late May events for F15
04:48:12 <bckurera> yes we have to have a plan
04:48:14 <tuanta> I will have F15 release parties at 2 cities, at least
04:48:37 <tuanta> Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh city
04:48:41 <dramsey> I remember that before we did Fedora Release Party dinners...
04:48:43 <dramsey> +1 tuanta
04:48:52 <bckurera> great work tuanta
04:48:55 <tuanta> we have a lot of Fedora users in Vietnam
04:49:23 <bckurera> So what i am maning is organizing
04:49:26 <tuanta> I would like to group them all
04:49:33 <bckurera> we have to have a vision and action plan
04:49:39 <bckurera> to cover the APAC
04:49:52 <bckurera> then we can effectively work on spreading Fedora
04:50:04 <bckurera> I see a great potential over Ubuntu for fedora now
04:50:05 <tuanta> we should prepare for the first FUDCon in APAC
04:50:14 <bckurera> it is popping up in Sri Lanka too
04:50:18 <dramsey> Sounds like an action bckurera to discuss with gbraad, kaio and mether
04:50:29 <dramsey> +1 tuanta
04:50:32 <bckurera> +1
04:50:38 <bckurera> yes we have to do something soon
04:50:57 <bckurera> whole community in APAC should wake up
04:51:03 <dramsey> True
04:51:10 <tuanta> +1 bckurera
04:51:13 <arifiauo> +1
04:51:15 <bckurera> we need to motivate our local FAm
04:51:34 <bckurera> but first we need to have a plan
04:51:34 <tuanta> it's on the way here
04:51:53 <tuanta> +1 bckurera
04:52:01 <bckurera> In Sri Lanka I am talking with other FAm
04:52:24 <bckurera> suresht actively participating for Fedora things
04:52:31 <bckurera> likewise we have to get others too
04:52:35 <tuanta> we should have a master plan for APAC and detailed plans for each country/region
04:52:44 <bckurera> coz alone we 3,4 ppl cannot make this happen
04:52:52 <bckurera> great tuanta
04:52:54 <dramsey> #idea develop a master plan for APAC and detailed plans for each country/region
04:52:57 <bckurera> we need such a thing
04:52:58 <dramsey> good ideas!
04:53:15 <dramsey> +1 bckurera
04:53:18 <tuanta> we should have big events to get all Fedorians involved, from APAC as well as all over the would
04:53:21 <suresht> +1 bckurera
04:53:25 <tuanta> s/would/world
04:53:26 <bckurera> if we can creat a committee for that
04:53:31 <bckurera> the work would be nice
04:53:46 <bckurera> India is working alone
04:54:01 <tuanta> I see, poor them, bckurera
04:54:01 <bckurera> so APAC plan not incuding India is the situation
04:54:10 <bckurera> +1
04:54:17 <bckurera> but being frank they are working hard
04:54:20 <tuanta> we should get in touch with them
04:54:27 <bckurera> hats off
04:54:43 <dramsey> I think that Harish and kaio are trying to bridge with meetings...would be good to hear their results.
04:54:46 <bckurera> yup i am trying to be KIT with them
04:55:14 <tuanta> I have not heard about Fedora activities in India
04:55:41 <bckurera> So wht dramsey?
04:55:42 <tuanta> if they have got some meetings like this, I'd love to join with them
04:55:45 <bckurera> what u think?
04:56:14 <bckurera> working alone not that effective
04:56:18 <bckurera> will work together
04:56:24 <dramsey> I remember reading about one month ago at our IRC about such meeting times.
04:56:27 <bckurera> as per the plan we are going to creat
04:56:28 <dramsey> Hello Kalpurush
04:56:36 <suresht> hi Kalpurush
04:56:56 <tuanta> it's not easy to organize a meeting for both Indians and the rest, but Indians with some observers from us is ok
04:57:35 <Kalpurush> Hi
04:57:35 <dramsey> Other thoughts?
04:57:36 <bckurera> we will work for that
04:57:48 <Kalpurush> Am i llate ? :(

05:07:41 <dramsey> s/>/.
05:07:42 <bckurera> location for FUDcon on APAC?
05:07:47 <KageSenshi> hurm .. havent decided yet
05:07:48 <tuanta> +1 for Singapore
05:08:07 <tuanta> there is RedHat office there, Harish there and... :)
05:08:07 <bckurera> i want to know someting
05:08:10 <dramsey> +1 singapore.
05:08:18 <KageSenshi> i'll be meeting with the guys tomorrow
05:08:22 <bckurera> who are going to organize this FUDcon?
05:08:23 <Kalpurush> Bangladesh
05:08:28 <bckurera> FAmSCo?
05:08:51 <tuanta> we should be in the organizing team
05:09:01 <dramsey> bckurera, that is a good question, let us make a note for the logs and I am sure that either harish and/or kaio will help.
05:09:03 <KageSenshi> bckurera, i believe it need a local team in the country selected right ?
05:09:14 <bckurera> yes
05:09:17 <tuanta> +1 KageSenshi
05:09:25 <bckurera> local team should have to 100% responsibility
05:09:39 <dramsey> Someone at FAmSCo and/or budget will need to approve the funding.
05:09:40 <Kalpurush> +1
05:09:44 <bckurera> shall we creat a discussion about that
05:09:54 <bckurera> aiming the F15 release we can go for a FUDcon
05:10:20 <KageSenshi> dramsey, in term of sponsorship, how much will come from famsco and how much will need to find from other sources ?
05:10:21 <dramsey> Good luck in doing bckurera, I think you will need a proposal and corresponding approval.
05:10:30 <bckurera> ok then we can discuss with kaio first
05:10:41 <bckurera> and with Harish
05:10:49 <dramsey> That is a good question, KageSenshi...someone who approves will need to have a "funding" line.
05:10:56 <dramsey> +1 bckurera.
05:11:26 <dramsey> Proposal and approval may be good steps to understand everyone's mind and intentions.
05:11:27 <dramsey> ;)
