This is a page for GnomeAsia committee members to plan for the GNOME.Asia Summit 2011.

(If you wish to join or contribute to this group, please contact gnome-asia-list (at) gnome (dot) org)


We will be holding the forth GNOME.Asia in 2011 before the GNOME 3.0 release. The whole summit will include a 5-days private Hackfest and a 2-days open-to-public conference.

Our objectives are to get together GNOME contributors to work on, promote and celebrate the GNOME 3.0 release as well as leverage on the GNOME 3.0 release to build a bigger GNOME community in Asia. We invited the GNOME release team, documentation team, marketing team and those contributors who will be involved with the actual mechanics of the GNOME 3.0 launch as well as those contributors living in Asia.
