Challenges Faced

These are some of the challenges faced by our contributors in the APAC region for the past year.

Issue Description Cause Countries Contributors Affected Priority Proposed Solution Remarks
People do not care/understand about Free Software or importance of Linux. Don't want to change what already works. Singapore Woo Huiren Medium Good narrative required to convince people? NIL
Lack of contributors helping to organize events. Lack of availability from existing contributors and insufficient new contributors Singapore Woo Huiren High Unsure NIL
Lack of contributors in organizing events. Lack of availability from existing contributors and insufficient new contributors. Most of existing Ambassadors are too busy for their dayjob China Zamir SUN and others in China High Unsure NIL
Open Source is popular in China in a wrong way Enterprises use Open Source as a way to get people's attention for joining events etc., but they do not actually do much to Open Source in events, they simply promote their commercial products. This makes people do not like Open Source events in some bit. China Zamir SUN and others in China High Unsure NIL
Lack of contributors in organizing events. Lack of new contributors. There are 3 ambassadors in Taiwan, and one of them is inactive. Taiwan Cheng-Chia Tseng and Freedomknight in Taiwan Medium To talk more about how to be an ambassador in local events? NIL
Lack of packagers. Lack of contributors. For example, gcin input method is still popular in Taiwan, but the package is not maintained and hard to enable in GNOME. Taiwan Cheng-Chia Tseng and Freedomknight in Taiwan High Most of wiki pages about RPM are translated. We hosted workshop on RPM packaging in 2016 but not lack of attendees. Unsure how to improve zsun: In the short run, I will help to get gcin back to Fedora.
Need for better onboarding steps for Indian contributors To prevent flood of ambassadors, a CLA +1 was previously implemented. Now, we need to rethink for a better way to onboard contributors. India Sachin S Kamath Medium Unsure NIL
People do not care about the OS With emerging technologies like Docker and new software, people are more OS-agnostic and just uses what comes as part of the stack. Malaysia, Singapore Mohd Izhar Firdaus Ismail Woo Huiren High Unsure NIL
