---------From Sunny----------------------------------------
I would take this opportunity to thank the openSUSE.Asia Summit
organization team. Today, now the openSUSE.Asia summit has started,
I'm reminded of the journey we took to get here.

I can not forget our weekly meetings, which often lasted to midnight.
I can't forget 137 cards in trello for the preparation tracking.
And I can't forget hundredss of emails about the Summit in our mail

When we were on the way to reach this summit, we encouraged and
supported each other. Even though we were tired, we never gave up,
because we did believe we would finally be here. It is my honor being
a member of such a great team!

There are 17 people in the organization team, I won't list everyone's
name because we are a team, and we couldn't have make any success
without each of us.

It's very nice to have 4 openSUSE members  with opening session.
Come from India / Beijing / Japan / Taiwan to welcome everyone come to openSUSE.Asia Summit.
