Re: [eclipse.org-planning-council] Managing opt-in/opt-out

Yes, that's what I was suggesting:

> We could also consider having a heavy-handed "miss M2 and you're out [1]" policy for the annual June releases, and a "if you were in for June you can coast through the year without opting in again and again" policy for the other 3 releases, which aligns with the old annual simrel trains' opt-in process and gets around the apathy/vacation schedules.

Ah right, forgot about that. In this case my opinion is: the opt-in process does not work anymore. IMO it must be possible to participate in the June release and then step aside for a bit without being kicked out in September. A lot open source projects operate by "occasion". They are not full-time staffed. Thus, their might be a release and then a period without activity.
