I also noticed that the "free" registration option went away. Is
that on purpose?

I don't know the specific circumstances motivating this change, but for
context - individuals sponsored by the travel committee have been sent
a discount code which waives the registration fee at the checkout.

In previous years, the registration fee was structured as a donation 
rather than a mandatory purchase. Rumor has it this was to avoid a 
repeat of the tax problems from the last desktop summit. Seems 
important to make sure this change won't be problematic.

I was just discussing this exact topic with Eike from KDE e.V. as the
GNOME board has just been considering funding conditions/approval for
LAS. It sounds like the European non-profit handling of fees versus
donations is different (and more strict/complex) than my understanding
of how this works for GNOME. I might be mistaken however. :)
