The issues will  generated by those who favour closed,
proprietary software, those who seek to rest control from the user to
the corporation and those campaigning for restrictive legislation.

The debate on Saturday concerned how the issues the AFFS might be
involved in should be framed. One camp believe that the issues should
be discussed purely in practical technical terms , the other that
concepts should be framed within a wider discussion about software
patents etc

This seems to be quite a fundamental concept that needs to be agreed
on before issues such as the how's and where's can be answered.
Tactics can only be discussed once the strategy is agreed upon.
Agreeing to disagree is a delaying tactic only then.
