I think we should not compute the active TU at the beginning of the vote.
Some TU may have miss to set the inactive state, or be back from
holidays during a vote.

Should we not remove the "active" users in our bylaws?
We consider that ALL TU should vote.
Saying we remove inactive TU in vote to reach the quorum, is an hijack.

We could also add auto removal of MIA? There is a field in archweb
with the "last action" of a dev/tu.

This is an excellent initiative!

I heard some complain about people missing the vote beginning.
Maybe adding some kind of
- direct TU email (like for notification) when proposal beging,
- direct TU email 1 day before end of the vote to non votant
- public email (aur-gen) when to announce the status of a proposal.
