I pointed this out earlier on, but it may have gone forgotten in the
mean time: naturally it would make sense to actually move the "normal"
general meeting with the regular annual items to the spring date if the
3rd resolution is accepted. There would not be a further general meeting
in 2015. This would have a number of advantages even without the
proposed article changes:

- the GM for a specific year is no longer held more that a year after
the end of the relevant business year. making it both more current and
interesting (and less confusing),

- the statuary requirement to provide the members with the annual
financials before the May 31st would be covered,

- the linkage with SOTM would be broken, which while it historically
made sense because there was no way to participate electronically is now
an added burden on the organizers and the board.
