When I mention APAC, it was about all of us in APAC not just you. :)
Once the DVDs reached to Singapore from both India and EMEA why we could not give a list to Harish?

I don't mind which tool we use but we can ask each community to update the wiki and we can easy get a picture of how much community requested and how much we should produce instead of one or two guys keep checking on tickets.

Imagine if you handle budget estimation and allocation via ticket system?
Once you have allocation you can use ticketing system.
Otherwise we have to wait for weeks till someone work on a ticket.

Best way is to have both budget and DVD request ready from each country.
Its matter of adding an additional column (against each event) to budget planning wiki page.
This can be done either country wise or as region (APAC).

And next thing is we should not wait till next APAC meeting if we have to do something.
Only Myanmar and Sri Lanka community (not applicable for India and China) filled wiki though I requested.

At least for this time we should distribute all the DVDs before F22 release as there is no point in keeping hundreds of DVDs remain in a box.

Hi Sirko,

Thank you for your suggestion.
If it was a problem EMEA had to face, it would be good for us to consider it

In my understandings, the process is:
1. People submit a request once they have an event.
2. Media is shipped from nearest stock.
3. People send back leftovers.

Is that right?

The problem is shipping cost in APAC is high.
It costed me about $40 to send a dozen of DVDs and some swag to Phnom Penh.

So I think the process could be changed to:
1. From the event list, people can roughly calculate the total they needs.
2. Then they submit a request to order them.

In this case, people would break down they need how many DVDs per each event.
Is that better?
