Bah, I should vote for a change the bylaws, I missunderstood what I
quoted before (Isaac's did a good point).

Facts are (speaking generally):

a) Removal of a TU is very hard, (even if he/she or they aren't doing
anything), we should need some 'automatic way' or .. less bereucratic
way to do that.
b) TU System on AUR need so much code ... (it's very limited) and I
can't or edit/delete that votation progress. It's invalid, of course,
but at the system level isn't.
c) I've speaked on the IRC channel, which btw loui we always would
like to have you there (don't know why you don't like to enter or
randomly :P), so I missunderstood somepart of the bylaws as Isaac
pointed me, but nobody told me anything too.. so I am accepting my
fault, but maybe if you were on our irc channel, you can advice me
before to send the application etc etc.

We're waiting yet for a swiergot's response yet.. so if past 24 hours
of the last mail, he doesn't replied anything I will ask for his
removal (on the TU channel though, and oh, again, you Loui are invited
to join us!, we are so wonderful people there :D)

And now, with Ranguvar, as I said, i let this occasion go with him,
because he's pretty new, and he maybe forgot to mark himself as
Inactive, but when you come back, please let us know :).

See you.
