And I failed to provide that myself:

s/have/would have/

The list has not been updated to reflect recent modifications
(additions and deletions within the total) to the team, but the fact
remains that at least one out of a supposed 37 TUs (less if we missed
any recent resignation) is inactive.

Even better, then ;)

Our bylaws are clear on this - the "automatically brought up for
removal procedure" means that there is no argument towards having a
removal vote - so we should start a vote (but we can also prevent the
removal by all voting YES).

I think the bylaws are also clear that we are to decide on the
activity status by memorising e-mails to the mailing list. The wiki
page is some sort of a manual tally for that. However, despite the
clarity, the method is no doubt cumbersome. We need automation.
