Dear Mohd Fazli Azran,

I think you already have a lot of good suggestions and pointers to start
your new project. I'll recommend an excellent howto on running GNU/Linux
User Groups which can be applied to GNOME User Groups right here:

You have about 15+ years of people experience in one single document
about what and what not to do to make your group successful. you just
need to apply some of the topics to be GNOME specific but overall a
great start for your group.

See you soon either online or live!

Dear Mohd,

It's nice to see you so passionate about FOSS and GNOME!

You can find a lot of useful information about how to start and run a
local GNOME community at

As Brian mentioned, gugmasters and GNOME.Asia groups [1] are the right
places for you to contact.

As a core member of GNOME.Asia [2] , our aim is to grow the GNOME
community in Asia. We have members from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India,
Vietnam, Singapore, Philippines, Indonesia, etc. it would be nice if we
can have representatives from Malyasia as well! We have been also
helping local communities to start and grow their GNOME communities, we
can definitely put you in touch with other Asian Gugs (GNOME User
Groups), please do subscribe to the two mailing lists [1] and we can
talk more over there!


One more thing! As the next major release, GNOME 3.0 is coming in early
April, we highly encourage local communities to celebrate this big
release, more information can be found at By hosting activities,
it can definitely help to boost GNOME awareness and users locally as

There are indeed too much information to give regarding this topic and
we are all excited to see you joining us!

Thank you for expressing an interest in setting up a GNOME Users Group.

Note that The GNOME Foundation has official User's Groups sign the
"Trademark Agreement for Users Groups" which you can find here:

So, the first step would be to send board gnome org a signed copy of
the form if you find it agreeable.

Also the gugmasters mailing list is for people interested in GNOME
User's Groups, so it would be a good forum to join and discuss further.

we call it Malaysia Open Source Conference (MOSC <>).
We now are prepare to do our 3rd MOSC2011 for this years. Yeah need a
lot of work to do now. But at least we can make people interest about
OSS and perhaps we can be one of the contributor to the OSS community
around the world. If we not start now others will not start. I`m also
