Here's the results as of this morning.  Fifty-three people voted (not
including myself, since I'm doing the counting).  I should have had us
set up a mail alias so that somebody else also received the votes, since
with this method people have to trust that my counting is honest.  Sorry
about that.

2 votes

Multiple people commented that this question was too simplistic.  Does
the X years need to be continuous?  What happens with a dev who is on
hiatus for some period of time?  Should there be an alternative
"fast-track w/ Y nominations from existing members" route to becoming
a member?  Nonetheless, there does seem to be a substantial consensus
that 1 year is about right.
