[Members] Changes to XSF Board tenure?

Hello all,

The XSF board has discussed the following, and seeks member input (that
means *you*) on the following suggestion.

Most XSF members will know that the XSF board currently consists of members
that are appointed for one year. The entire board is replaced each year.

Board likely benefits from more continuity, particularly by reducing the
ramp down and ramp up period in which the board gets replaced, which can
take up a considerable amount of time.

To improve the effectiveness of Board, I suggest we consider changing our
process, to prevent the entire board from being replaced at the same time.
The XSF could, for instance, appoint board members for two years instead of
one, and replace half of the board members every year.

What do you think? Is such a change worth considering?
