  That's the thing IMO, a trustee shouldn't be any run of the mill dev,
they should know and experience the history, they should be someone who
has dedicated/proven themselves to the gentoo way and aren't going to
leave the project on a whim. As a trustee you're gonna be there to
protect the foundation and it's fundamentals, to promote the foundation
as a whole. Trustees should be held to a higher standard, but this just
my opinion.  If the person is  gonna leave the project after a year of
being a trustee, then that person shouldn't have volunteered in the
first place. (unless its because of some illness or family related
event)

  Back to the point, year terms seem awfully short within the scope of
their jobs.  As you've seen the legal stuff takes forever just for the
most minute things.
