As a non-native English speaker, it is nice-to-have that some TC or BoD can
stay in the local social media, like wechat group in China. But it is also
very difficult for non-native Chinese speakers to stay find useful
information in ton of Chinese chats.
My thoughts (even I am not a TC candidate) on this is,
1. it is kind of you to stay in the local group.
2. if we know that you are in, we will say English if we want you to notice.
3. since there is local OpenStack operation manager, hope he/she can
identify some information and help to translate, or remind them to
My one cent.
