This proposal was discussed on the review and at the TC meeting
yesterday. While it has so far attracted broad support, we'd like to
give extra time for PTLs to review it.

As mentioned by notmyname on the review, the change is effectively
changing the term for which the current PTLs just got elected. The
charter said "6 months", and with this change in effect the PTLs will
actually be renewed before the start of Pike, so in 4 months.

So we'd like to get extra time for PTLs to chime in on the change and
post their +1 if they are fine with it. We'll wait until the TC meeting
on November 8th to finally approve this.
