I personally don't have a problem removing bans once someone indicates
that they understand why the ban was put in place, and that they are
going to avoid that behavior in the future. I generally don't place
specific time limits, because I don't believe in punitive action... and
also because I'm lazy, and I don't want to promise that I will remember
to remove a ban at a specific time without being prompted.

The whole purpose of bans and warnings is to stop unwelcome behavior on
Debian infrastructure.
