[1] roughly defines it as "committed a change to a repository of a project over
the last two 6-month release cycles"

For the sake of generating the full APC roles we (the election officials) define
the exact range and communicate that[2].  At approximately the same time the
governance repo is tagged and used for reference[3].  There are no extra-ATCs
for Packaging-deb[4].

That is how we define the electorate, changing that mid-election is not an option.

Yours Tony.
