Hi Markus,
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.

Best regards
