Hello Mike :)

WRT the PTG, if you get approved as an official project before the end of
the month, we would love to have you!

The PTG isn't formatted the same as the Forum though. The PTG is more
project focused technical discussions amongst project contributors- think
midcycle rather than design summit or forum presentations. That being said,
we have the space for Glare contributors to meet for Wed- Thurs or
Wed-Friday if you think you can get enough people together to make it worth
while :)

Good luck with the last steps to becoming an official project!
