I'm going to object to putting this on tommorrow's agenda.

I don't have any specific objections to the content of the proposal, but
16 hours is WAY insufficient discussion time for an Associated project

We depend on the members to raise issues around legal entanglements,
traps and other "unknown unknowns" with new projects.  Giving members
less than a day's notice is in no way adequate for this.
