[aur-general] [tu-bylaws] [PATCH] Honor TUs who become active/inactive during votes

Instead of counting the number of active TUs when a vote begins, update
the number whenever a TU becomes active/inactive during a voting period.
This is a more accurate measure since everyone who is active at some
point in time during the voting period is (technically) able to vote.

Signed-off-by: Lukas Fleischer <archlinux at cryptocrack.de>
Rationale: The AUR soon supports automated computation of voting
results. This change is needed in order to get a proper measurement for
the number of active TUs. There will probably be another amendment as
soon as the next AUR release is out.

Let the discussion period begin!
