I believe both communities are important and exactly for the same
reasons as Neville. I can only say that any help to the Chinese
community is a win for the long-term. No matter what the outcome will
be, I am sure this will be seen as an inspiration. However, I am also
worried that most of the Chinese members are not able to attend the
Indian FUDCon. As mentioned earlier, it would be wise to have someone
who can decide for us based on metrics, but also with a good
understanding of both options.

About the timeframe for APAC 2012? I would say that is later and
certainly NOT the ideal period; baking hot temperatures ;-)
