One easy way to do it is to set your Launchpad team to an expiry
period of 12 months or whatever alternative period you are happy with
(I think 3 months is rather short), and allow individuals to
auto-renew their membership. That way, those not interested in
auto-renewing will drift away gradually. Instead of maintaining a list
of members on the wiki, just add a link to the Launchpad team.

This is a pretty sane way to manage most Launchpad teams that are not
restricted, I think.
