This seems reactionary. We never had an activity counter before. Actually, I know WebKit reviewers who stopped working on the project for 2 years and restarted the activity later. Even with a fast growing community and an always changing code base, the expertise was still good enough to continue where stopped right away. On the controversy, it may leave people at the Blink project who want to switch back to WebKit later and even more harm is done to the WebKit project.

I object to such a proposal.
