| Can you comment on how much longer the GHC core team will exist?

Indefinitely.  Meaning that=20

(a) There is no time limit: Simon and I have permanent posts
Reuben and Julian left when the grant ran out; we knew that
was coming, but there is no correponding future event known.

(b) But (as has been the case for the last 15 yrs) "indefinite" does
not mean "forever".   One day I'll get old and die.

The more people that help look after GHC, the healthier it will be.
It's fun, it's rewarding, and it's not as demanding as you might
think.  There's even a lovely commentary to explain how it works
