[ Feel free to forward this to other Linux kernel mailing lists as
  appropriate -- Ted ]

This year, the Maintainers and Kernel Summit will NOT be held in
Halifax, August 25 -- 28th, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Instead, we will be pursuing a virtual conference format for both the
Maintainers and Kernel Summit, around the last week of August.

As in previous years, the Maintainers Summit is invite-only, where the
primary focus will be process issues around Linux Kernel Development.
It will be limited to 30 invitees and a handful of sponsored
attendees.

The Kernel Summit is organized as a track which is run in parallel
with the other tracks at the Linux Plumbers Conference (LPC), and is
open to all registered attendees of LPC.

Linus will be generating a core list of people to be invited to the
Maintainers Summit.  The top ten people from that list will receive
invites, and then program committee will use the rest of Linus's list
as a starting point of people to be considered.  People who suggest
topics that should be discussed at the Maintainers Summit will also
be added to the list for consideration.  To make topic suggestions for
the Maintainers Summit, please send e-mail to the
ksummit-discuss@lists.linuxfoundation.org list with a subject prefix
of [MAINTAINERS SUMMIT].

The other job of the program committee will be to organize the program
for the Kernel Summit.  The goal of the Kernel Summit track will be to
provide a forum to discuss specific technical issues that would be
easier to resolve in person than over e-mail.  The program committee
will also consider "information sharing" topics if they are clearly of
interest to the wider development community (i.e., advanced training
in topics that would be useful to kernel developers).

To suggest a topic for the Kernel Summit, please do two things.
First, please tag your e-mail with [TECH TOPIC].  As before, please
use a separate e-mail for each topic, and send the topic suggestions
to the ksummit-discuss list.

Secondly, please create a topic at the Linux Plumbers Conference
proposal submission site and target it to the Kernel Summit track.
For your convenience you can use:

	https://bit.ly/lpc20-submit

Please do both steps.  I'll try to notice if someone forgets one or
the other, but your chances of making sure your proposal gets the
necessary attention and consideration are maximized by submitting both
to the mailing list and the web site.

People who submit topic suggestions before June 15th and which are
accepted, will be given free admission to the Linux Plumbers
Conference.

We will be reserving roughly half of the Kernel Summit slots for
last-minute discussions that will be scheduled during the week of
Plumbers, in an "unconference style".  This allows last-minute ideas
that come up to be given given slots for discussion.

If you were not subscribed on to the kernel-discuss mailing list from
last year (or if you had removed yourself after the kernel summit),
you can subscribe to the discuss list using mailman:

   https://lists.linuxfoundation.org/mailman/listinfo/ksummit-discuss

The program committee this year is composed of the following people:

Greg Kroah-Hartman
Jens Axboe
Jon Corbet
Ted Ts'o
Thomas Gleixner

Hi Ted,

Can you please add ksummit-discuss@lists.linuxfoundation.org to future
related emails?

Thanks,

Frank

What timezone are the conferences being held in? It impacts on what I
can attend quite heavily :-)

Dave.

When you register for the Linux Plumbers Conference, there will be an
opportunity for you to indicate your timezone preferences.  The
current thinking is that the timing will be like many of the virtual
conferences, which is to run it only for at most 3-4 hours a day, at
hours when it is most, convenient for the people who have registered.
That's for the Kernel Summit.

For the Maintainer's Summit, due to the lack of topic proposals, we
are probably going to end up skipping it for this year.

Cheers,

    	     	      	     	      	     - Ted
