Noteworthy Stuff

  1. Survey results are up

a) To sum up, we have a total of 79 respondents, exceeding our target by roughly 50%.
b) 30% of the survey participants are involved with the GNOME 3.0 release.
c) More than 70% respondents are from Asia (I can see some lobbying right here! ).
d) 71% of those 79 people will most likely join the event.
e) The leading hosting city is Hong Kong, followed closely by Bali and Jakarta in Indonesia, then Bangalore (India).
f) Most respondents favor a university as the venue of choice, followed by resorts and offices.
g) The best moment for the hackfest is during or after the GNOME 3.0 release.
h) Rather than the initial 5 days plan, 3 days seems to work better for everyone involved.

  1. Committee will decide the dates together with the venue end of this month. We will wait for marketing team to reply on our offer to change the dates to "before the release". If we receive no reply, we will consider either during or after the gnome 3.0 release  according to the feedback from our survey

Next Week's Agenda

  1. proposal updates + Q&A + opportunities to improve localization for Hong Kong + start a Hong Kong GNOME user group + Hong Kong needs from GNOME - DONE
