This year the draft agenda includes a far more controversial topic, I'm
surprised it hasn't been made public already.

As the organization is mostly run by the activity of volunteers, the GA
can't exactly order people to do things.  However, it does have
significant influence in passing resolutions on matters such as:

- the relationship between volunteers and the organization

- financial decisions (notice the accounts are growing every year...)

- making broad statements and resolutions that try to capture the will
of the community or help the organization going off course
