Sorry for the delay in replying, I am currently on-[VAC] and seldom
If Puppet Labs require us to give a list of attendees, I think we can
rpovide it - But conditioning it to them stating they will not use it
for other than to keep track of who enters their premises (i.e. no
spam, no data gathering/keeping). Eventbrite does not strike me as
very friendly for us in this regard.
Now, I would give just a full dump of attendees. For every attendee,
we expect with >90% certianty them to be there. If not for the cheese
and wine, for the social part. and some do miss out, but it's by far
not the common case — And people sometimes decide not joining just
So, in short: Ask them what data they want, and what do they want to
do with it. Ask them if we can provide it in a non-EventBrite way.
