That's a good point. We however don't mind so much since we use the money to get developers to the conference and we're crediting at similar cost.

I however have one question regarding Red Hat as I have many contacts (except India). Who would you recommend to contact between Jonathan, Red Hat international marketing (John Adams) or eventually local offices in Singapore and/or China.

From experience I don't think China will be so interested but they will refer us to Red Hat India (and might help with the process).

It is important to note we would love to have 2-3 Red Hat guys who are working with Jonathan (Owen, Matthias, etc.).

I was actually thinking to email both John Adams and Jonathan considering this year GNOME.Asia can be considered as an international conference and the importance of Red Hat US in the development of GNOME Shell. What do you think?
