I agree with what Tim/Jason have said in their emails.

That said, perhaps we do a larger event (like we did at Barcelona) at
Summit in Boston, but... if there is a desire for some RDO developers
to get together to discuss technical/tactical issues while at PTG, why

Basically... "RDO Community Meetup" at Summit and "RDO Technical
Discussions" at the PTG, for those that are around for them. Given
what Jason is saying about space at the PTG, maybe the RDO Tech
Discussion is just an evening thing and is informal?
