Indeed. OTOH our fellow openSUSE guys seemed to have held a fairly
successful virtual summit earlier this year with some in-development
virtual-conferencing software that does more than just video/audio
streaming ( https://requiredmagic.com/roundtable/ ). In particular the
possibility to have interactive Q&A with the presenter during and after
the allotted talk slot seemed to have made up for hallway discussions.
Maybe that's a viable way. (I personally wasn't at the virtual summit to
know for sure, but the experience report from some of them was quite
positive; I know nothing about the conferencing software of LPC)
