Thanks for caring.

I wouldn't ask anybody a mid-long term commitment from the beginning: we are
volunteers, it's perfectly ok to take a break or step down from the team
for any reason, at any time.

The comment about 2-3 year membership is more intended to the project to take
into account that even in the case that team members would feel ok and
work fine, they probably will need a break "soon". And then you need to
sum the amount of time of finding new person(s) to join the team, and leave
them a bit of margin to get accostumed to the team and participate without
feeling the pressure to be in the "first line".

In fact, I think the same for any Debian team, not only Anti Harassment Team...
