I saw we left the board thread (which is public and archived). Great
response from Tobias and probably should be on the public thread too.

    Eoin et al.,

    there are various options:
    as you attend RSA as individuals first, feel free to pull out or not.
    (IMHO there can be good reasons for either way, although in my eyes
    RSA lost quite some credibility due to that.)

    However, if you want to release a PR item as OWASP, we should have a
    quick discussion about it. Possibly on the governance list. (Just
    remembering some of the feedback I received when 8 weeks ago
    proposing that OWASP should officially state that people, companies
    or governments should not put "backdoors" into software or undermine
    the security or crypto of products. - And that was a much more
    generic case.)

    All the best, Tobias
