I think some rotation is good, but not wholesale.  I'd support a longer term 
with staggered vacancies so we don't start over entirely.

The other thing is that we are not exactly over-run with volunteers.  I 
volunteered for motu-sru on the 2nd round after we didn't get enough on the 
first.  I've be glad to volunteer for a short initial term on motu-sru to get 
the cycle started.
