Ok, but then I'd prefer to make Council a monitoring entity of these
two.  That is, if QA or DevRel team(-lead) is slacking (however you
would define that), Council has the right to appoint a new lead (any
time).  That way you give the regular 1 year term to someone who does
his/her job, but allow to intervene directly as needed (and not after 6
months).

Right, agree here.  I also believe the low turnout can be interpreted as
little to no interest to deal with stuff like this, so probably best
when Council does all the "work".
