>> 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.
