"Voting" or "not voting" has nothing to do with time. There is no
obligation to vote in Debian, and there shouldn't be any; voting is not
what Debian is (or should be) about. We have governments for that.
While I think it's a good idea to consider whether people voted or did
not vote for the DPL election a data point for MIA-ness, I feel that the
lack of producing a vote should not be taken as inactivity.
