Keeping people who are no longer active on the committer list
shouldn't cause problems.  No quorum is required for votes.  Emeritus
is used for folks who no longer follow the project at all.  Some
committers may no longer be contributing code regularly but they
should still be reading the developer mailing lists and may vote.
More active contributors primarily determine the current technical
direction of the project by making contributions.
