Firstly apologies this email probably goes to a bunch of extra people
but i'm not sure of the correct address to reach the organising
committee for the next asia summit.
As part of our due diligence, the board was wondering how you are
handling money for the conference next year? Are you using the bank
account from a local related not for profit organisation? or are you
getting sponsors to pay for items directly? Or do you have another
If you are going well getting sponsorship to the point where you would
need less of SUSE's money to actually run the conference the board is
happy to ask SUSE to allocate more of its sponsorship to conference
travel support rather then directly for the conference. IE if you only
needed $3000 from SUSE for running the conference we could ask SUSE to
allocate an extra $2000 to travel support for the conference. For Tokyo
we ended up allocating the full $10,000 to TSP because other sponsorship
covered the full cost of the conference. We can't guarantee that this
can happen again but its certainly something we can look at.

Hi Simon, Board member,
First of all, thanks for your email.
We don't have any "official account" in Indonesia, we don't have a
foundation nor SUSE in Indonesia. What we had done in 2016, when we
held openSUSE.Asia Summit 2016 is we used personal account from one of
our community trusted member. We used that account to receive any
donation/sponsorship. I believe for 2019 it will be the same way.
I have discussion with the local committee today, and they decide that
put it 50% for TSP allocation and 50% for Summit organizing committee
would be the best, at least for the time being. During fundraising
period if the committee believes they can cover all costs through
fundraising they will inform Board, and at that time Board can
allocate all the money for TSP. Is it possible?
