Based on the above discussion, my intention is:

- To extend my nightly statistic script, to check new commits (probably restricted to our code repo).
- For every commit If the delta between the last commit from the author and this commit is more than 1Year, the script will notify me.
- I will write a "happy to see you again" mail, with copy the dev list, so the author hopefully starts to be an active part of the community again.

- We already have scripting in place, to mail authors who have not contributed for > 3 months. (see "20(20) to be emailed" in the stats.

- Before revoking anybodys commit right please notify me in advance, so I can write a nice email to them as a last poke before executing the revoke.

Suggestions and comments are welcome.
