Just wanted to underline once more, that there is nothing bad in being 
inactive. ;-) We all know that, there are times with our work, kids, 
personal life or vacations when we are not able or do not want to 
contribute. This is no problem, really. Someone active is not worth more 
than someone inactive.

It's more to protect you ... (ya, ya, ok, it's to protect us! You got me.)

An active member status implies alot. It implies that you are ready to 
recieve (and answer) emails with questions to stuff you did. Or stuff 
that has to be done. It implies that you take place in the extbase team 
meetings. It implies, that you help making descissions and follow the 
team evolve in the mailinglists. It implies that you contribute 
frequently ...

When I ask for support to the project, people keep saying "but you are 
$highnumber members!". People don't realize, that only 2 - 5 people at a 
time contribute to the project and that the need for codeprints (and 
aquiring new members) is high. When I tell people "This or that won't 
make it into 4.7", they wonder how 10+ people can not get this in 2+ 
months. Not to speak of documentation. ;-)

So an inactive status in no means reflect, that you do not contribute to 
the project. It just tells people from the outside, that you do not 
contribute RIGHT NOW. Which is fine ... as mentioned.
