FUDCon APAC Recommendations

Posted by ankur in Tech (289 words, approximately a 2 minute read)

Hello Fedorians!

We need you to make a recommendation for the APAC FUDCon ASAP:


If you haven't already, please read Robyn's mail to the fudcon-planning list[1] stressing that the APAC FUDCon will need to be deferred to next year if a decision is not made quickly. It makes perfect sense, since the period for FUDCon APAC is March 1 - May 31, which is almost upon us, leaving us hardly any time to organize the event. We'd like to call an emergency meeting tomorrow at 0400UTC (Sunday, 26th February 0400UTC at #fedora-meeting) with only one agenda in mind: "Make a concrete recommendation to FAmSCo on FUDCon APAC". If we fail to decide on a location, the default recommendation is "Defer to 2013 cycle".

date -d 'Sun 26 Feb 2012 0400 UTC'


If you are the owner of one of the bids[3],[4],[5], it is imperative you attend this meeting to market your bid. Please do also go through your bid pages and add all the information you can, up to date.


I've also created a wiki page here[2] that you can use to submit your recommendations. Please try to attend the meeting, if you cannot, you are welcome to make a recommendation on the list here or to use the wiki. All of this should've been done much earlier, but it still isn't too late. Please try to have your recommendations in by 26th Feb 2359UTC
