I think it's confusing you mention the council here. Council is there to
make decisions. If people miss the meetings, we can't make decisions.

Also, note that a council member can be proxied by other developer.

Could you explain more? Is it about people retiring because of that?

If so, then I agree we should permit some "leaves of absence" or maybe
even "sabbaticals" to keep talented people in the project, while
allowing them to rest.

Also, one can return after retiring.
