   I think the same, we should not be alarmist but be consistent with the
   situation. Maybe making the attendees see that we are aware of the
   situation and apply everything that is in our possibilities.
   From Spain in these cases we apply the fair percentage of common sense
   and alarmism to try to carry out a normal activity.

     I certainly don't want to be an alarmist, and do believe that much
     of the media attention is very overblown, but I think FSF, and
     LibrePlanet specifically, needs to address conference plans in light
     of the current virus situation.
     I am aware of major business conferences being boycotted by both
     vendors and attendees over concerns;  I'm sure Free Software
     activists might be interested in what the LP response is going to
     be. Even just an acknowledgement that the conference is on, and
     recommending that those who do not feel well should stay home.
     Possibly a emphasis on remote attendance via live stream and any
     enhancements or accommodations that are going to be made to fully
     support and encourage participation of those who choose not to be
     locked in small enclosed spaces with several hundred fellow
     activists. A simple banner on the LP.org and FSF.org sites seems
     warranted.
     I want to encourage some official communication about how the
     conference is making allowances to handle the current virus
     outbreak. While we may do nothing specific (not my preferred
     position) we should at least acknowledge the questions that
     attendees may be asking.

     It seems odd to think the media attention is "very overblown"
     when, at the same time, the front-line epidemiologists and
     medical professionals are urgently asking for greater awareness of
     how
     bad this appears to be, and how poor the organized response in the
     U.S.
     In California, a growing list of quite important professional
     conferences have been canceled.  The general release of a new Bond
     film
     has been postponed because theaters are shutting down.
     Community-based
     transmission has been confirmed in a growing number of cases.
     Libreplanet should take a cue from corporations like RSA and IBM:
     cancel.
     As a reminder:  the movement should consider concentrating on
     low-resource
     demand communications software to help society be resilient in the
     face
     of this and other growing crises.

     The FSF is currently preparing this kind of statement, which we hope
     to get out in the next day or so.
