Pretix is FLOSS (they also provide a hosted solution) and according
to their support when using them with Stripe it is possible to disable
automatic payouts but only do one big manual payout. AFAIU this would
result in one big transaction to the Red Hat account. They also seem to
be a little bit cheaper than Eventbrite, they have great support and
they handle big events such as the Chaos Communication Congress.
Sounds good. I will find out from RH Treasury if we can wire up a Stripe
account in time. I'll report back with our situation. I don't know how to
predict the likely outcome so I won't try :D.
