Next step: mailing lists vs other platforms

Alma Linux ... potential sponsorhip for openSUSE Conference
- Can they actually sponsor us in a meaningful way (given that it's an online event only)?
- apparently so (based on Neal's experience working for sponsor of OSC'21)
- Decision: not now, give it another year (at least)
- Decision: no mutual sponsorship
