A hotel group discount has been arranged that covers Summit 22 as well as FOSDEM 2018. There's no requirement to spend all nights covered by the discount. It's perfectly fine to spend just some nights, which might be of interest to people attending just one, instead of both events. Please find details on the wiki page for Summit 22.
