  • 1. Local Community for Debian Hideki Yamane (Debian Project:Debian Developer) <henrich @ debian.org/or.jp> http://wiki.debian.org/HidekiYamane
  • 2. Foreign events ● First trip to Taiwan ● Tripped to... – Spain : DebConf9 – U.S. (NYC): DebConf10 – Bosnia – Nicaragua : DebConf12 – Swiss : DebConf13 – Taiwan : MiniDebConf (this one!) : DebConf11
  • 3. About me ● Hideki Yamane / やまねひでき <henrich @ debian.org/or.jp> – – Debian Developer See http://wiki.debian.org/HidekiYamane – ● From Japan, Saitama (near Tokyo) Also Ubuntu Japanese LoCo member I'm not skilled/technical person – So this session focuses on non-tech issue
  • 4. Today's Agenda ● Term: Global / Local community ● Introduction “Local Community in Japan” ● Issue: Integrate local activity to Global
  • 5. Debian • Universal operating system • “community” distribution
  • 6. What’s Community? ● ● Many people: Developers, Translators, Designers, users... Internet – debian.org: web, mailing list, irc ● ● develop, translate, discuss... DebConf – Annual event – Around the world...
  • 7. Debian Community ● ● Its activity&community is “global” but also supported by “Local” Debian Community.
  • 8. What’s Local Community? ● defenition from Ubuntu – About Local Community (LoCo) Team “With the incredible success of Ubuntu around the world, the LoCo project is here to help groups of Ubuntu fans and enthusiasts work together in regional teams to help advocate, promote, translate, develop and otherwise improve Ubuntu. “
  • 9. What’s Local Community? ● defenition from Ubuntu (thanks! :-) – About Local Community (LoCo) Team “With the incredible success of Debian around the world, the LoCo project is here to help groups of Debian fans and enthusiasts work together in regional teams to help advocate, promote, translate, develop and otherwise improve Debian.”
  • 10. Local Community (e.g.) ● Debian France (http://france.debian.net/) – founded in 2006 ● ● Debian Swiss (http://debian.ch) – ● founded in November 2006 Debian JP Project (http://www.debian.or.jp/) – founded in 1996. 8.29 ● ● http://france.debian.net/a-propos/ http://www.debian.or.jp/community/events/2002/0919-lc2002/JP-Enkai-History.html Note:Probably not only those but just examples as formalized one
  • 11. Why Local Community? ● Sometimes do well than one global community – Promotion: new user, new contributor ● ● Regional event/meeting ● – local media (web, magazine, etc...) Merchandise language barrier ● – Help users High flexibility
  • 12. Promotion ● e.g. magazine
  • 13. Promotion ● meeting
  • 14. Language Barrier ● ● (broken) English is common language in Global community However, sometimes it's tough for non-English native people to express their feelings and ideas, discuss their opinions (...at least for me ;-) – ● we cannot force regional people to use English It’s natural way to use our mother tongue (so l10n/translation is important!)
  • 15. High flexibility ● ● language barrier + large organization = slow action change something is high cost: difficult to do just “try & fix”
  • 16. Japanese Local Community ● Debian JP Project – overview – member – Activity ● Website ● Mailing list ● Twitter ● Mirror server ● Event ● BTS/repository
  • 17. Debian JP Project: overview ● Debian JP Project – not official NPO (yet) – Established 1996 ● Staff: 3rd gen
  • 18. Debian JP Project: Member ● Numver: Around 50? ● Active = only several – some of their job become hard – some of them are busy to play with their children :-) – some of them just lack interest and find a joy with something different...
  • 19. Debian JP Project: website ● http://www.debian.or.jp – Template Toolkit and bloxsom by @kmuto – Subversion (around 1500 commits) ● Almost 98% by me ;-)
  • 20. Debian JP Project: mailing list ● debian-users / -docs / -www / -devel / -announce @ lists.debian.or.jp – Not “anyone can post”: low spam – Low traffic ● ● ● Mail centric → web Many floss/developer communities nowadays Fml4 – old perl based mailing list program – Migrate to Mailman? / fml8?
  • 21. Debian JP Project: Twitter ● DebianJP広報局 (@debianjp) – Around 800-900 followers (vs @debian: 58000 followers) – 1500-1600 tweets (99% by me ;-) ● – Some of JP members claimed “it should be able to post from any JP members” but I don't agree with that. As social media, there should be “Person” behind the account, I believe. Tweet something around Debian and more...
  • 22. Debian JP Project: mirror server ● ftp.jp.debian.org, powered by CDN service by @ar1 (see github) – WIDE Project / 地球流体電脳倶楽部 / 北陸先端科学 技術大学院大学/ さくらインターネット / OYU-NET.JP – We run debian-mirror.sakura.ne.jp (thanks to さくらインターネット)
  • 23. Debian JP Project: event ● meeting/event booth – – ● Almost once a month See http://www.debian.or.jp/community/events/ Meeting is important to mentor new developers
  • 24. Mentoring ● Tokyo/Kansai Debian meeting – Started by dancer (Junichi Uekawa, pbuilder/cowbuilder author) – new DDs , DMs and translation members/package maintainers ● e.g. me :-)
  • 25. Debian JP Project: BTS / Repository ● We ran own BTS and repository since 1999 ● Stop using own infra, merge result to .org
  • 26. Local Activity in Global ● Q: Other regional people know activity in Japan/Taiwan/etc?
  • 27. Local Activity in Global ● Q: Other regional people know activity in Japan/Taiwan/etc? – A: Probably “No” – Maybe little bit tough to show it ● ● Language barrier How's Planet Debian? http://planet.debian.org
  • 28. Kaizen Idea ● Role model: Ubuntu LoCo – use common issue tracker ● ● – launchpad.net bugs.debian.org Idea: use "LoCo" usertags in BTS ● Discuss in non-English, then summarize in English ● Easy to post ● Easy to track issue (centralized) ● Easy to see activity
  • 29. Kaizen Idea ● Role model: Ubuntu LoCo – Certify Official LoCo – Annal activity check – Navigate to each regional community ● See http://loco.ubuntu.com/
  • 30. Kaizen Idea ● DebConf – ● LoCo session? More miniDebConf in Asia – DebConf is only held in Europe/America – More “Asian power” to Debian! – Taiwan / Thai / India / Japan (plan)
  • 31. Kaizen Idea ● Push More talented regional people to Global community – Mentoring – Help to communicate in ML – Get local sponsors for travel sponsorship to go DebConf! :-)
  • 32. Global & Local http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/File:Ancient_version_of_the_Taiitu_by_Lai_Zhi-De.svg
