VTB Task record's 'Active' flag not getting updated when moved from a closed state to an open state


When a vtb_task record gets archived, its Active state gets updated as False. When the same vtb_task record gets restored (set to an open state), its Active flag stays False.

This issue is reproducible in VTB view and in platform view, only when the state is changed to Work in Progress from Closed Complete.

Steps to Reproduce

1. Create a freeform board
2. Create a few tasks
3. Archive a card
4. Do vtb_task.list and check the card that is updated.
> Active is False
5. Set the same card's state to Open or Work in Progress.
> Active flag stays false
