This introduces the possibility that, even if the DD votes in every election
and uploads their packages once per release cycle, they'll be MIAed out of
Debian - if one year the DPL vote is a little early, and the next year it's
a little late, and there are no GRs during the intervening year, then a year
passes in between votes.

I think if we're going to expire DDs out in the described fashion, 2 years
is the minimum threshold we should use.

Should activity in teams be enough reason to be regarded as an active DD?
(Are you referring here to package teams, or infrastructure teams?)
