India?

Reaching out to India is desirable. Population there tends to have strong sense of national pride and would readily explore any means to make themselves independent of anything perceived to be foreign imports/help (read: Microsoft, United States).

To do this however, we need translators.

China

20090723 : Met up with the team vicmarcal has befriended. They are a group within iMTKoo, started by Jackson Pan, a mobile applications company. Since NetRong, the company that asbai is working for, is in a related field, would be nice for the both of them to get in touch with each other, they may be interested in collaborating in projects, ROS-related or otherwise.

In the week running up to 20090714, there have been a number of Chinese users who have been perusing the forum, all interested in doing development work. They are plato, return, and caimouse. asbai has also joined recently and has tried to used his company's (NetRong) products against ROS. One other chinese user (anfly) and one HK user (ZumarX) signed up in June, but have not been heard from since.

Singapore

Getting knowledgable volunteers from here would be a good idea. If caimouse forms up his dev team from the users in this forum, they may have some difficulty in terms of communicating in English with the core team. The same difficulties apply to the team that vicmarcal has befriended. Many of the Singaporean Chinese are bilingual in both Chinese and English to varying extents, so this would facilitate collaboration.
