Question about "emeritus".
My intent is to maintain a list of active core developers. If an
inactive core dev becomes active again, they should be able to
retrieve quickly the "active" status. Is "emeritus" still a good name
with such constraint?
Note: I like "emeritus" name to describe inactive core devs ;-)
