IMHO we should keep the current rules in the short term. I don't think
it is nice to change the rules while we are playing the game. If someone
established the current rules is probably because there was a discussion
and an agreement on not requiring a new election unless 3 or more
members resign.

I do think the current situation opens a good discussion to improve
things for next terms. IMHO the current rules are good enough. Even if
we consider Rahul's absence we still have sufficient members. If we
should remove or not a member who is absent for a long time, it is
another question also worth it.
