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.
