ill clarify that slightly in that we do have guidence that "Red Hatters may not travel to attend external events or
conferences with 1000+ attendees, even within their home country."

in the past when the ptg and summit were combinined and we had the devsumit have ment that travel to the openstack even
would not be allowed. At its current size its kind of in a gray zone where its is not banned as a public event but if it
was an internal event the number of redhat employee that would be attending woudl be over the limit we have and the
physical event would be canceled and converted to a virtual only event.

so its tbd if i will be attending too although i have not heard a definitive No at this point but i also cant really
book tickets and flight yet either however the guidance we have been given is to try and default to virtual attendance
were possible.
