> First of all, thank you to Kaio for translating my earlier blog post,
> and to everyone who¡¯s responded ¨C on the original post, the translation,
> IRC, and the Fedora Chinese mailing list ¨C I¡¯m about to fall asleep
> (jetlag) but will sit down and reply to everybody when I wake up
> tomorrow morning.
> My schedule in China is starting to settle down a bit ¨C I am in Beijing
> from today (Sunday) until Wednesday afternoon, and in Shanghai from
> Wednesday evening until Saturday morning when I fly back to the US. If
> you¡¯re involved with or interested in Fedora or even FOSS in general,
> and you are in either of these two cities, I¡¯d love to meet with you;
> propose times, dates, and locations and I¡¯ll continue to blog here every
> day I¡¯m in China.
> Today I spent the afternoon with Gerard Braad and his wife Shan, who
> graciously helped with travel logistics (have you ever tried to book a
> hotel via a website in a language you don¡¯t know?) showed me around
> Beijing and told me about their perspective on the situation. We have an
> overarching goal for this week: RAPTOR-PROOF FEDORA EFFORTS IN CHINA.
> What this means is that we need to spread and scale the knowledge here
> that we have about how to participate in the Fedora community so that if
> any one person is eaten by a raptor, the Chinese Fedora community is
> still ok. Right now, the burden lies on too few shoulders ¨C so few that
> one person getting the flu could seriously bottleneck efforts the entire
> country. Clearly, this must change!
> The major raptor-proofing problems we have identified, and potential
> solutions we¡¯ll be working on
> this week:
> 0. There is only one regional Ambassador mentor, so it is very difficult
> to grow Ambassador presence (and hence Fedora brand awareness) in China.
> Strong mentoring is particularly important here; Chinese culture is
> considerably from existing FOSS subcultures, so teaching new Ambassadors
> about upstream communication may take a lot of time and patience.
> Solution: identify and train multiple potential Ambassador mentors.
> 1. There are few materials (swag/media) in China. This includes things
> like t-shirts and LiveCDs, the latter being tremendously important in a
> country with slow download speeds, fickle connectivity, and firewalls.
> The price of manufacturing and distribution within China is very cheap,
> and the price (and difficulty) of importing them from elsewhere is very
> high, so it makes sense to make these things in-country, but it has
> been difficult for Chinese Ambassadors to get financial resources from
> Fedora. Solution: Get small quantities of physical media of all sorts
> (pens, stickers, CDs, etc) to China and have them duplicated; Chinese
> factories are fantastic at making copies, and it¡¯s easier to hand
> someone an item to copy than to go back and forth with written
> specifications describing it. Also look into the state of the queue via
> which APAC Ambassadors are supposed to be requesting resources; who
> maintains it? Is it well-understood and publicized? Is there a clear
> process by which Ambassadors can find the status and expected response
> time of their requests?
> 2. The language barrier is a red herring. Yes, the Chinese-English
> language barrier makes things more
> difficult, and we should encourage and cultivate participation in (the
> various forms of) Chinese so people can work in their native tongue, and
> improve the cross-communications between the Chinese and English (and
> other-language) speaking parts of the Fedora community ¨C BUT it¡¯s not a
> blocker and we shouldn¡¯t use it as an excuse. Solution: Set up
> opportunities to cross-collaborate between China and other region, THEN
> use that existing collaboration to drive linguistic crossover, rather
> than always planning things the other way around. We¡¯ll try to start
> with a MIPS FAD centered around Beijing; more on this later.
> 3. There are very few people in China with exposure to the open source
> way of doing things ¨C there are many people with the technical ability
> to contribute, but few who know how to do that work in the context of a
> FOSS community and push their work upstream. Solution: See #2, with an
> emphasis on getting people to meet other strong contributors from
> outside their region. Can we bring some MIPS hackers from China out to
> January 2011¡¯s Tempe FUDCon to present their work to NA contributors?
> Can we send EMEA Ambassadors to APAC events? Also, Ambassadors can focus
> on getting individual people started in the community; it¡¯s easy to
> find, request, and use resources once you know it¡¯s easy (people tend to
> have the ungrounded perception that it¡¯s hard, because they don¡¯t know
> what the process is).
> Other topics on the table:
> * Major dates for media availability in China: Software Freedom Day
> (September 2010) and F14 release day (November 2010). We¡¯ll treat the
> first event as a test run for how to do media production in China, so
> the second one will be a simple ¡°just do the same thing again¡± execution.
> * Marketing and Ambassadors in China in general, and the
> relationship between the multiple groups and people involved in one or
> * Fedora-zh community infrastructure hosting. Where can this be
> done? Right now, everything except the IRC channel (#fedora-zh) and
> mailing list is scattered in an undocumented manner across individual
> uncoordinated VPS accounts that cost a tremendous amount of money
> relative to the average Chinese salary, so it¡¯s a fragile network that
> is in danger of disappearing with no backup.
> * Getting introduced to existing Fedora contributors in the region,
> both online and in person, and trying to understand the network of
> contributors in China, and articulate the structure of that network and
> the culture it works within back out to the broader Fedora community,
> along with what work is being done here.
> Thoughts? Other things we need to add to the agenda?
> We¡¯ll be in #fedora-zh (irc.freenode.net) all week if you want to talk
> or find out what¡¯s happening in the region; I¡¯m mchua and Gerard is
> gbraad, and there are plenty of others in the channel who can fill you
> in on what they¡¯re doing as well. You don¡¯t need to speak Chinese to
> hang out in #fedora-zh (I sure don¡¯t!) There are many people there who
> understand English, and some of us also understand other languages as
> well, so please come on in and join us and lurk; we¡¯ll be posting and
> logging conversations there throughout the week.
