As one of the other two in the etherpad, I will say that I was looking forward to getting together face to face with other contributors for the first time (as I am new to the project), but I guess the majority won't actually be there, and I understand that we need to do what is best for the majority as well. I know that at least one or maybe two other people from my team were also planning to attend some Kolla sessions, so I'll see if I can get them to sign up. The other projects I'll be focused on are Octavia and Barbican, and I know both have been successful with a hybrid approach in the past (providing video of the room and allowing folks to dial in and contribute, while also having a number of people present physically). Since the room is already reserved, I don't see a huge point in avoiding its use either.
