Re: [alpine-devel] [PATCH 2/2] Rework the base team description

There is a big difference between sharing the workload and giving up authority. My main objection is to the stipulation that a base team member cannot be reelected immediately. Not only is ncopa sharing authority with two others for the first three years, he would be forced to give up all authority in the fourth year. Or am I reading it wrong?
