Does this satisfy what's required by the bylaws though?

    the term for the members of the Technical Committee shall be
    approved by a majority of the Technical Committee (“Term”) and
    shall be published publicly before each Technical Committee
    election; if no such Term is published the Term will be twelve
    calendar months.


I guess it doesn't *strictly* require a term duration to be
specified as an explicit measure of time, so it's possible to
interpret it as allowing terms to be defined according to some other
criteria as long as they don't also exceed 16 months.
