Last Friday (just before Labor Day) I learned that Linus had gotten
confused about when and where the Maintainer's Summit was going to be
held this year. And most unfortunately, he has already scheduled a
family vacation overlapping with the week of the Maintainer's Summit.
Over the weekend, I've been conferring with folks from the Linux
Foundation, Linus, and the Maintainer's / Kernel Summit program
committee. We explored a lot of options, but ultimately there were
only two choices that were workable:
1) Have the Maintainer's Summit in Vancouver, without Linus.
2) Move the Maintainer's Summit to Edinburgh, with Linus.
Curiously enough, Linus suggested option #1. And while holding the
Maintainer's Summit without Linus might be an interesting experiment,
ultimately, the Program Committee had a strong consensus that moving
it Summit to Edinburgh was the better option.
