While visiting [[https://fosdem.org|FOSDEM 2016]] in Brussels, a group of people had discussions about organizing a Debian-related event during FOSSASIA in Singapore. Emails were sent to potentially interested DDs (on [[https://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2016/02/msg00008.html|debian-project]] and [[http://lists.debconf.org/lurker/message/20160203.194247.8412259b.en.html|debconf-team]]) and we set up this wiki page. We hope DDs and other Debian enthusiasts would love to join a MiniDebConf in Asia. For many years a number of Debian contributors wanted to make a follow up to the successful Mini Debconf at the FOSSASIA Summit in Vietnam. After discussions at the Debian conference in Japan 2016, and during preparations for [[https://fosdem.org|FOSDEM 2017]] we finally confirmed a number of DDs and friends of Debian to join the FOSSASIA Singapore summit. We would love more DDs and Debian enthusiasts to join.
