+1 as well.

In addition, we might also consider having inactive IPMC members go emeritus.
Other ASF projects have such provisions in their bylaws.

    Membership of the PMC is by invitation only and must be approved by a lazy
    consensus of active PMC members. A PMC member is considered "emeritus" by
    their own declaration or by not contributing in any form to the project
    for over six months. An emeritus member may request reinstatement to the
    PMC. Such reinstatement is subject to lazy consensus of the active PMC
    members. Membership of the PMC can be revoked by an unanimous vote of all
    the active PMC members other than the member in question.
