> Hey everyone-

> creates quite a bit of uncertainty on everything surrounding the summit.
> Furthermore, the existence of the Core party has been... contentious. Some

> Personally, I appreciate being thanked for my work. I do not necessarily

> Managed release repo approvers: 281

Personally, I am in the camp that the core party is something that should
not be continued because of it's somewhat exclusionary aspects. I don't
have an alternative in mind to fill the space of the party. I often find
that given an open/free night something a bit more subdued (even than the
core party) can occur, it just tends to be in a number of smaller groups.
Having a further respite from the speed/intensity of the summit (an open
night with even less plans!), would be welcome to many of us.

Also consider the split summit proposal and if the core party really has a
place in the new proposed summit/project gathering world.
