I hope you exercise due diligence in this matter. You already have screwed up along these lines in the past. You lost at least one contributor that time, I don't think losing more is a good idea.

There seems to be a lot of this going on, removing people from groups. Is there a good reason for it? So what if someone is "inactive" maybe they could want to contribute something tomorrow or next month. Why should they have to do anything in order to do what they have been able to do before. Why is having inactive accounts such a big deal? If I was counting numbers I would rather be able to count "125 contributors, 12 are inactive" than "113 contributors" when we all know that a large part of that 113 have not done anything in docs in a long time if ever, they just happened to re-set their password.
