If we don't manage to get a board majority to postpone the whole thing,
there's something else we could do at least: Ask those who stand for
election to commit to calling a new GM within a certain time frame, and
offer the membership a "reboot" option.

(Quite frankly, the term limit that's being discussed is nice but I'd
prefer a simple rule that says, at least for the "reboot", that nobody
who ever had a board seat is eligible. Fresh faces strictly.)

Then our members could elect these people and they could then plan the
reboot from the inside. It would not be as strong as an AGM resolution
but better than nothing.
