Let's just recognize that we need to chat and let's move on.  A lot of
people have done stuff and we are all thankful for that.

What I would like to see the collective us to achieve is:
a) list out a set of action items in our respective geographies that
promote Fedora and Open Source in general
b) Take ownership and responsibilities of whatever we sign up for.

Shall we just move on and plan for the next chat?  Let's see if it makes sense
for us to have both weekday and weekend chats?

Our challenge here in APAC is that we have 6 time zones to cater to -
from Pakistan to NZ.  Unlike the US or EMEA, we have a bigger challenge.
We also have to work within the connectivity challenge as well.
