Changing re-election periods

We have a calendar correction to make.
The current schedule of SPI elections for the Board is this:
2007: 6 seats
2008: 3 seats
2009: 0 seats
2010: 6 seats
I think you can see some problems with this skewed rotation, the product of
some missed/aborted elections in our past. I'm thinking of proposing two
1) That three years is too long a term for a board seat in an OSS group;
instead, it should be two. For evidence, check out the history of
attendance listed last election; it's a steady decline by year of office.
2) That we alternate 4/5/4/5 on a two-year election cycle. This would mean
one of the people elected in 2006 would be up early; I'll volunteer.
However, since this is a change to the election procedures I don't think
that we can do it as a board vote, so I'm not sure how to ratify it even
when we reach a consensus.
