Subject 答复: Forming a community of Apache fans in China - Apache China Community

One important reason for forming the Apache China Community is to overcome the language barrier.
We will help the Apache fans (developers, users, etc.) in this region to understand the Apache
Way and it's projects better thru offline and online engagement with localized contents and

主题: Forming a community of Apache fans in China - Apache China Community

Hi Apache Community Development PMC,

Wish to get some advices on how to form a community of Apache fans in China. Would a new China-specific
project at the ComDev be possible? Please see the background and thoughts outlined below.

Apache projects and technologies have been widely adopted in China, such as Alibaba, Tencent,
many enterprises, academic and public services. However, there has been little engagement
between ASF and communities and enterprises in China. We, at KAIYUANSHE (<>,
the first ground-up open source alliance chartered to promote open source governance and technologies
in China and Asia with over 50 community and enterprise members now) wish to bridge the gaps
between the leading international OSS communities, like ASF, and communities and enterprises
in China. The last Apache roadshow was on 2009 in Shanghai. We, KAIYUANSHE, thought it'd be
good to reboot the ASF engagement through another roadshow in China.

The Apache Roadshow 2015 - China with KAIYUANSHE was organized by KAIYUANSHE and successfully
held on Oct. 24-25 in Beijing with ASF's community sponsorship and keynoters support, i.e.
Brett Porter, David Nalley, Niclas Hedhman, J. Aaron Farr and Jason Dai. Please see more roadshow
details here.

After the roadshow, we have received tremendous requests to form a China community to keep
engaging with 5000+ audience who attended this roadshow and tens of thousands people who did
not have time or were unaware of the events. So far, there already are many volunteers, including
Apache members, PMC members, committers, contributors, developers and users, who are willing
to join the China community steering committee and working groups to help grow the talents,
projects and community in China and bridge between ASF and the fans in China following the
Apache way.

Any feedback or advice on how to form a community of Apache fans in China or how to form a
new China-specific project at the ComDev would be greatly appreciated.
