Great that we're talking about this - definitely something needs to be
done. RFC 1 says in regard to the composition of the PSC:
"Addition and removal of members from the committee, as well as selection
of Chair is handled as a proposal to the committee as described above."
I unfortunately haven't had the time to contribute to GRASS for a few
years now, primarily because my work has taken me away from the field of
GIS - so I would be happy to propose myself to be removed from the PSC at
any time. It's very easy to let these things drift, so I think a specific
date every year at which PSC members can confirm their intention to
continue is a great idea.
I'm not sure this really needs any changes to RFC 1 either - if desired,
it could simply be an informal rule. If any PSC members aren't willing to
continue, then their removal from the PSC can be put forward as a proposal
by the chair. I do think it's important to have a specific date every year
that everyone knows about though, as five working days is quite short and
someone might be away on holiday for example.
To make it convenient for the changes you're proposing right now, I would
suggest 1 June could be the annual "renewal date".
Apart from that, great work.
