I wish to add two things to what Scott wrote:
First, two purposes for the conference have been recognized to date:
1) to facilitate planning relevant to 9.1 and beyond,
2) to build trust and relationships between community members.
Given present realities, three options have been proposed:
a) travel scholarships
b) postponement, e.g. to Fudcon in January
c) remote participation
We all recognize that goal (1) can be conducted effectively by remote
means (c) but I doubt that goal (2) can be achieved in this fashion.
The question is therefore how to provide for goal (2). While I could
certainly accept a consensus forming around option (b), I happen to
think that (2) is so important that, like Scott, I would be honored to
fund travel and to supply room and board for one or two scholarships if
others felt the same way.
