Another council election

We're a bit late running the next Council election. The problem is that
our vote counting software, countify, has a bug somewhere that
produces incorrect results under obscure conditions. Shrug.
On the other hand, the voting (and vote collection) software does
work, so we may as well hold the election, and deal with counting the
votes when the time comes.

It seems that getent passwd is having issues with the number of
users that we have, so a new trick is needed for producing the file
of eligible voters:

$ perl_ldap -S gentooStatus | grep \
> -i active | awk ' { print $1 } ' > voters-council2006
