Here's a list of our achievements together. We don't really like to brag, but this page do come in handy - to see how fast we're moving forward for example. Oh, and it will make it really easy to make a progress report in the LoCo meetings - just give them this page's URL, and that's it! (hopefully )
It's very easy to be listed here: the event/project should be already finished / concluded. Or, if it's still on-going, then it should have some kind of result worth presenting.
OK, here we go :
Here you can find some of our projects.
- DVD repo project : Internet access in Indonesia is very slow AND very expensive. Therefore, it put Linux distros which relies heavily on good internet connection, such as Ubuntu, at severe disadvantage. Several members of the community then initiated the "DVD Repo" project. This project provides the complete Ubuntu repository on several DVDs for a low cost. This creative project has given us a very favourable coverage.
- A part of the community has been very aggressively campaigning the use of Edubuntu for education institutions in Indonesia. Called, it has done several installfest sessions, and converted several schools to Edubuntu. A gallery of the events is. Currently there's work underway to provide open-source based curriculum which then will be made available for all education institutions.
Andy Apdhani has single-handedly translated the whole UbuntuGuide to Indonesian in one day. (he got quite sick and dizzy for quite a while after that transla-thon-fest!). It was the one. His hard work has not gone to waste - at one time, 70% of the server's bandwidth was used to serve this single page alone !
The one listed on the main page now is for Edgy. Work is already underway for the Feisty UbuntuGuide translation.

- Full Circle Magazine : Our community member has translated the Full Circle Magazine into Indonesia, and made it .
On September 2006, Ubuntu Indonesia LoCo was featured in CNET Asia. CNET was very interested on the creative approach to a showstopper for Ubuntu in Indonesia - lack of good & economically priced Internet access . ubuntu-id initiated the "DVD repo" project, which made the whole Ubuntu software collection available in DVD, enabling many to enjoy Ubuntu without internet access.
On InfoLinux magazine, May 2007 edition, there's a coverage of a company's migration to Linux. Their distro of choice is Ubuntu Dapper, for its long-term support. The migration was done by a member of the community. Utilizing Ubuntu & LTSP, the company managed to save more than 80% of the budget originally allocated for software license cost. And downtime has decreased free article directory significantly. There's a link for the PDF version of the article, but it's currently down. Will be put here once it's up.
