Yes I can go with that. That can be added alongside "public" I guess.

Note that we should not lure ourselves, these events are never free. I
know that's not what you're saying and I'm not saying this against you,

transportation and accomodation make up for the bigger part of the

Publish a blog post yes! as I mentioned below. I agree this could be
made a rule.

At the moment I would say not necessarily on xmpp.org though.
Specifically, I don't want to make this a hard rule that you have to get
your article published on xmpp.org. It might happen that we (the XSF)
don't want it there for reasons.

People can publish it on their own blog or preferred platforms (I'm sure
we can suggest some if they are not affiliated with any), they're the
canonical source they get the SEO and that's fine to me. We can and
most likely will retweet/retoot/re.. when something is available. :)
