If a TU then becomes inactive during the vote and prior to casting his or her
own vote, he or she would still count towards the quorum, which doesn't make

Second proposal:

> The quorum is normally counted among TUs who are active from the beginning of
> the discussion period until the end of the voting period. Other TUs may
> participate in the vote if they wish, in which case they shall be among those
> counted to establish quorum.

* 20 active TUs during the whole procedure (start of discussion to end of vote):
    quorum is 14 (0.66 * 20, rounding up)
* 2 new and one inactive TU decide to participate:
    quorum becomes 16 (0.66 * 23, rounding up)

The second sentence thus prevents skewed quorums.
