Compelling, no.  Rational, I think so -- the extra lag time leaves more
time for other people to be elected since there are two or three seats
turning over at each release.  I should note that this policy somewhat
codifies the suggestion of a couple other Board members, so I'm not
wedded to it as is.  If the community thinks a one-release "cooling off
period" is appropriate, I'm fine with that.

The overall objective is to make sure that interested, qualified
community members who can't spend the majority of their time working on
Fedora, can still be competitive in our elections.
