There seems to be a problem which some are seeking to solve by leaping 
striaght to what they consider to be an 'ideal' solution. We can only 
start from where we are. 

As mark points out the time scale is too short, and the AGM proposed for a  
time which may not elicit the maximum possible attendance. One alternative 
solution might be to hold an AGM, (trying to get a full slate of 
candidates for the Honourary Offiers and Committee, in order that the 
meeting can have 'real' elections), with the Agenda containing only the 
business required, plus a motion to hold a further Extraordinary General 
Meeting later when everyone has had time to both consider and discuss a 
way forward. 

In the mean-time I would like to start the ball rolling with a discussion 
as to where we should hold the discussion. This list seems to meet the 
basic requirements as it is open to all those who may have an interest in 
all aspects of Free Software.
