Earned merit doesn't go away at the ASF.  That being said, if someone doesn't participate
for over a year, we usually ask them to go Emeritus, but that's not a big deal.

Some of it's in the ASF by-laws, some of it just in how the project chooses to organize itself.
 For instance, some ASF projects rotate the chair every year, others do not.  Lucene hasn't
rotated but that's probably b/c the Lucene PMC is pretty low-key and low-maintanence anyway.
