As I said, I'm happy without saying anything about a timeframe at all.

It is, but we could do it our own way 8-)

Later in that thread I agreed to Conor's suggestion to require 2/3
majority for this.

No.  I'd rather have both, consensus and 2/3 majority decisions and
make clear which type of decision is used where.

Removing a PMC member should be unanimous IMHO.  Breaking a veto is a
different thing.  If the veto is valid, it cannot be broken, no matter
which majority.  If it is not valid, it is void.

the board if it will ever come to this.
