I am fine with your plan.  Just it seems better to run the event on Sunday 22nd.
However, I still have the same unknowns about the broadcast.  And to
be honest, I have not been able to dedicate some time, preferring much
fun stuff.

Well, just to fix the idea and be concrete on what we have to do on
the technical side.  The ActivityPub Conf website is here:

source here: <>

Some hosting is done there: <>
The videos have been edited and pushed there: <>
Well, it seems a good idea if it is possible.

For each BoF, they have a forum webpage and sometimes some additional material.


And for each video, they have also a forum webpage:


Therefore, we still have the same technical issue: how to stream?
BigBlueButton?  If yes, which instance?  The French Aquilenet one used
last time will not be enough, Andreas said.

Do we ask to <>?  I volunteer to do so if
needed.  But I would not be outside the scope and ask something (i.e.,
lose their time) if we disagree and another solution is preferred.

Since Christopher L. Webber run the ActvityPub Conf, I am planning to
drop them an email and ask them for some advice/help.  Any objection?


All the best,
