          A PMC member is considered inactive by their own declaration of by not contributing

whichever condition
          made them inactive (i.e., by reversing their earlier declaration or by once again
contributing toward the
          project's work). Membership can be revoked by a unanimous vote of all the active
PMC members other

chair annually
