Hi Jiri,

First off, I hope everyone is riding out COVID-19 as well as possible,
considering all that's happening.

As for LPC mini-conf topics, I'd be interested in (at least):

- Petr's per-object livepatch POC
- klp-convert status
- objtool hacking
- Nicolai's klp-ccp status
- arch update (arm64, etc)

Hmm, all good points.  Some conferences have gone virtual to cope with
necessary cancellations, but who knows what things will look like even
at the end of August.  Perhaps we can still do something remotely if the
conditions dictate it.  But my vote would be yes, and let's see what
topics interest folks.
