Agreed. That was not the intent. We do need a time out of some sort or 
the sheer numbers of inactive members will make it impossible to get 
quorate members meetings.

I'm a little uncomfortable with that as it would mean identifying votes 
with individuals. Not publicly but that information would have to be 
knowable if membership were tied to voting. 
What about having retired devs apply for membership annually ?
The idea here being able to keep individual votes secret.

I certainly don't want to forcibly retire active foundation members.
