[tc][uc] Status update: Uniting TC and UC

Hi everyone,

A quick status update on that effort. The TC just merged a change[1] 
that will result in the TC and UC acting as a single body, starting on 
August 1st, 2020.

The date was chosen so that the remaining UC members (Mohamed Elsakhawy 
and Jaesuk Anh) can finish their term. After that date, the UC mission 
will be taken over by the elected TC members, and from there on we'll 
have a single elected body, including developers, operators and end 
users of the OpenStack software, and inclusive of all types of 
contributions to the project.

In August I'll work to merge the content on the UC governance site and 
the TC governance site. This will include adding a new file on 
openstack/governance to add and track voters corresponding to the AUC 
criteria. Those will be added to the electorate in time for the next 
round of elections in September.

This simplification will make the OpenStack community more easily 
navigable, and further remove barriers between contributors with an 
operations background and contributors with a development background. 
For more information on the motivations behind that change, please read 
the original thread[2] proposing it.

I'd like to personally thank the User Committee members for their 
support in that transition, and for all the work they accomplished for 
OpenStack in the past.
