At least in the case of HP, this travel ban is blanket (i.e., not
based on destination) - though there was an earlier ban (probably 
a month old) for ~ten countries in the middle east.

As you can see, two weeks in June appear to be the best alternatives. Please
identify any conflicts / alignments I have missed. We need to settle on the
next meeting date quickly so people can reschedule their canceled flights.
People flying AA seem to have the shortest amount of time and we may not be
able to reschedule within their 2 day deadline! In this case I recommend
these people reschedule for the Provo meeting in October.

PLEASE HOLD DISCUSSION OF THIS TOPIC ON pwg at pwg.org NOT pwg-announce!
