Greetings Community,

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
Ubuntu Community.

- 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:
Or read the minutes at:

I hope we are all cleared. Thank you.
