Hello all,

First, thanks to all candidates for volunteering to the Foundation Board.
Max come from GNOME.Asia team and thanks GNOME and board support Asia.

I have 2 questions to all candidates

1)  How many hours per week do you expect you will be able to dedicate to
working on the board on a regular basis?

Around 5 hours or so. I can spend more time on it when it is needed,
but it would be unsustainable of me to commit more on a regular basis.

2)  What's your plan and view with GNOME in Asia? How do you think
about grow GNOME in Asia?( ecosystem / contribute / sponsor /
volunteer ...  )

The ecosystem in Asia is very different from in Europe and North
America. I think that the local community is much better placed at
promoting and growing GNOME in that region than I am, so I would be
most effective on the board at ensuring that any resources which are
needed by people like you which the Foundation can provide are
available for you to use. This can be everything from funding for
events to putting you in touch with other people who can help.

* Maybe you already notice -- there start to have sponsors from Asia
with GUADEC.( There are 2 in 2015 and 1 in 2014 )
* There are some open source events related and co-work with GNOME
Users Group or Members in Asia.
For example
** Hong Kong Open Source Conference  ( )
---- After GNOME.Asia Summit 2012, there are more GNOME and  open
source related activities in Hong Kong. They start Hong Kong Open
Source Conference at 2013.

** openSUSE.Asia Summit ( )

** FUDCon ( )
---- We held GNOME.Asia Summit 2014 together with FUDCon.

I know there will be more people ask questions about all domain with
GNOME, so I ask question with Asia first.

Thanks again for all candidates volunteering to the Foundation Board.
