Sorry for the long delay. I've had a look again at the proposal and at the
comments, let's see if I can summarise them.

It's been said this is too short, and that 1 or 2 years would be better. It's
also been proposed that we could have a long term (e.g. 2 years) but with
"pings" from time to time (e.g. 6 months) to see who is not active and then
replace inactive members. That way you don't change the entire team at the same

I personally think 2 years is too much, but one year would be fine with me.

And I don't think there will be problems regarding to changing the entire teams,
as I expect some of the old members to reapply and be re-elected.
