Virtual Summit 2020 Talks and Times

Hi,

Can Thunderbird use "Jitsi Meet" instead?
https://meet.jit.si/

If Thunderbird wants a paid service, can 8x8 be used as they pay the 
full-time Jitsi developers?
https://8x8.vc/
https://www.8x8.com/

All the Jitsi software is open-source which seems to be consistent with 
Thunderbird's software model.
https://jitsi.org/

What do you think?

Cheers

Óvári
