I think that'll benefit the key Flock participants, but wouldn't help as much
to the Fedora APAC community. It would not serve the purpose of bringing Fedora APAC
contributors together, or help to grow the Fedora APAC community. (just thinking aloud)
I might be speculating but does this question arise because we don't see
increase in number of contributors from APAC after an event like FUDCon
If that is the case, we might want to re-look at large event like FUDCon
in this region and focus on having measurable ambassador programs and
smaller local conferences which is not heavy on budget but good means to
nurture and develop potential local Fedora contributors.
We should look at Flock as a global event and fly key contributors from
APAC. IMO, that will be more rewarding for people who really
contribute. If we see the number of key contributors increase from this
region then we can re-introduce FUDCon APAC?
My .2 cents.
