Pretix[0] 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.

Treasury has informed me that we are not allowed to use Stripe.  At this point, I am unsure of any options other than Eventbrite.

Barring new suggestions or me finding something else, I will move forward with Eventbrite next week.
