Hello Everyone,

Greetings. :)

Buddhike's e-mail is very important.  :)
A "huge" +1 for these efforts.  :)

I strongly suggest we, APAC put in useful information to assist in this effective mission.  :)

Please note, "> Deadline for the entries = 2013 Jan 04, 23:59 UTC"

This is the single most important thing to help us accomplish our 2013 goals.  :)

> Time has come to plan next year budget, FY2013.
> As per the continuous improvement on budget management by FAmSCo, Budget Wrangler per each region needs to submit the next year budget at the end of the each year.> All the expenses except FUDcon and FAD should be included. This is a projection of the total funds we need for the year, though we tried last time that wasnt possible. Therefore this is the first time we are going to do this.> I know as per the current situation it is hard to make such a budget because sometimes special needs may arises. However we need to manage his challenge. Therefore it is required to get information from the FAms and plan. Tuan will also help me on this.
Understood, I have started my entries in the ticket.  :)
> Following has been identified as main areas that we need funding.
> x Media production> x SWAG production
> x Expenses for Release parties
> x Event sponsorships
> x Event attendee subsidy
> x Special projects/ policies
> x Others

Fantastic!  :)
> The process will follow like this, if you planning to do something for next year under above categories please prepare a rough budget and update the ticket. Please include in ticket[1] what is it (which category it belongs), expected quarter* and amount required(good if it can have a cost breakdown). Do mention the estimated rough cost. Margin for unexpected expenses will be considered later at the budget preparing stage.
> Deadline for the entries = 2013 Jan 04, 23:59 UTC
Understood on the deadline.  We need to do this!  :)
> Once the budget is prepared I ll present it next APAC FAm meeting and once it is agreed I can forward it to FAmSCo.
> FY13 Q1 (March 2012 - May 2012)> FY13 Q2 (June 2012 - Aug 2012)
> FY13 Q3 (Sept 2012 - Nov 2012)
> FY13 Q4 (Dec 2012 - Feb 2013)

> Thanks for your support and please do contact me if you need more help or clarification.

My first couple attempts at the ticket had my initial ideas, needed are "hard" numbers in terms of funds and other needed levels of effort.   :)
Four words ==>  We can do it!  :)
Sending positive Fedora energy to your computers now.  :v)

Please have a Great Fedora day and evening! :~)

Thank You
