Hi Kirill,

Thanks for the invitation, the openness and transparency are very much

Now, for the issue at hand, I expect it will be quite hard for people to
justify the registration cost for a fully-virtual event, when the slides
and recording will be posted online and publicly available a few days later.

I don't know how past LUG attendees feel about this, but I'm concerned
charging users $175 for the privilege to attend LUG 2022 through Zoom may
not be exactly aligned with OpenSFS' missions of promoting Lustre usage,
increasing awareness and expanding its community.

Anyway, that's my $.02.
