For your information,
Last night, we have already discussed regarding this "making money for
ubuntu-my" on our loco IRC channel #ubuntu-my on irc.freenode.net
And here is the conclusion as what I understand (please correct me if I'm
- Nobody will make money by representing Ubuntu Community and Ubuntu
Community won't keep any money for any donations. we don't have any Treasury
Dept or Accountant.
- If in case, Ubuntu Community need some money to work on any community
events/project, the money should be coming from any sponsors including
ourselves and the money will be spent over that event/project alone.
- All members have freedom to make money using open source, or providing
open source service BUT you CANNOT use Ubuntu Community name OR representing
- You can use your good name and experience in Ubuntu Community to
strenghten your Profile or Portfolio.
You can read the Meeting Log for details at:

I hope we are all cleared. Thank you.
