Yes. That's technically "missing and not being represented" but the
exact formulation is unclear, since we separate assembly and the voting
( ie, we vote on the internet ). 

So we have to decide exactly, and I have to find the previous year vote
if there is someone to be moved to another group after the vote. 

And the goal is to not keep people who are inactive since this would
make harder to get the quorum later.

Of the association ( more precisely, of "Mageia association active
members " as seen on https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Org ). IE, I need to
move people from the council group to another group in ldap, and reflect
accordingly the wiki, after checking. 

Once the association-member group is correct, then we can start to see
for voting. ( this and I need to remember how we do a vote, and maybe
even do a documentation ).
