We sometimes get low-quality drive-by reviews even from people who are active at the time. I feel like that's not the right basis for the time cutoff. If we do have a sunset period, we should think about it in terms of how long it takes to be so out of touch with the current state of the project that there's little chance you can give a useful review.
