I think two years is to long. 
We have had a board of 13 for almost a year now 
and as you can see there in the short period of time that has passed 
already that many have already become inactive. By changing to a two 
year setup we could potentially shoot ourselves in the foots by having a
board that can grow stale. The members that have done a good job and 
it's visible to our devs however will be renominated and reelected.

With that said, I think cshields has done pretty good job the past year
looking out for our Gentoo interests and I'd like to see him right back
in there for another term.
