During Debian Project Leader Elections 2019 I asked to all candidates how to increase diversity in Debian with DDs outside Europe and North America. Later Jonathan called it as “geographical diversity”, and I am using this idea for this BoF.

So, let’s talk how the Project can encourage people from southern hemisphere to contribute to Debian. Do we need more Debian events outside Europe and North America sponsored by Debian with DDs from there? Does Debian has budget to sponsor people to go to Europe and North America to join Debian events because most of DDs are there?
