Awesome work ttx.
Thank you!

Cheaper cities & venues should make it easier for more contributors to
attend. Thats a big deal. This also feels like enough notice to plan
for that.

I think this means summit talk proposal deadline is both after the
previous release, and after the contributor event for the next
release? That should help keep proposals concrete (less guess work
when submitting). Nice.

Dev wise, it seems equally good timing. Initially I was worried about
the event distracting from RC bugs, but actually I can see this

I am sure there are more questions that will pop up. Like I assume
this means there is no ATC free pass to the summit? And I guess a
small nominal fee for the contributor meetup (like the recent ops
meetup, to help predict numbers of accurately)? I guess that helps
level the playing field for contributors who don't put git commits in
the repo (I am thinking vocal operators that don't contribute code).
But I probably shouldn't go into all that just yet.
