I'm pretty sure that's incorrect, as per my mail:

4.2(4): the minimum discussion period is 2 weeks (and hasn't been varied)
A.2(4): the minimum discussion period is counted from the time 
          (a) the last formal amendment was accepted
          (b) the whole resolution was proposed if no amendments have been
              proposed and accepted

   A.1(1): "amendments may be made formal by being proposed and sponsored",
           so there were three formal amendments, Adeodato's first, Anton's,
           and Adeodato's second.
   A.1(2): "A formal amendment may be accepted by the resolution's proposer",
           which didn't happen for any of these, so there were no formal amendments
           that have been proposed and accepted, so (b) holds

   The whole resolution was proposed on 11th Jan 2006 21:53:43 +1000, and
   received sufficient sponsors at 12th Jan 2006 09:59:20 +0000.

So the minimum discussion period ended on the 26th Jan 2006 09:59:20
+0000, afaics. Since the initial draft of the GR was posted 1st January,
we've already been discussing this for six weeks, so I don't think
there's any need for another two weeks on this.

That allows the original resolution to be changed in some cases without the
discussion period restarting.
