I'd also be interested in the suggestion of synergy with the
If there's 3500-tech-interested people, why not focus on that event
entirely and try to reach more than 100?
This is probably a more nuanced articulation of a similar question I'd posted.
On a more general note, something for APAC region to consider...
very rough back-of-the-envelope calculations, the $17k proposed here
could instead be used to get a dozen key contributors from APAC to
Flock next year. How would doing that compare as value for the money in
terms of overall benefit to the Fedora APAC community? (Not saying
that's necessarily better — genuine question.)
Different objectives would be achieved. A part of the Fedora APAC
community needs to identify geographical regions which are
under-represented and then plan ways to increase participant and
contributor base around the area. APAC is both a high population
density and a large region, how large is the mid/long-term contributor
spread around the zone? How can we plan to increase that? These are
good questions to be planful with.
Enabling Flock participation of 'key' contributors creates an
opportunity for such participants to drive the direction of their
projects. It does not necessarily demand that they create similar
paths for others in their own regions. Not that they have to (but just
in case a 'trickle-down' was being thought of)
