Well, I see this quite different. First of all we should make sure to make MC 
stuff transparent, thus I'm raising this issue on the ubuntu-motu mailing 

Actually I was quite happy to see a big participation both in the discussion 
and the resulting decision in yesterdays motu-meeting. IMO universe suffered 
in the time before MC was established exactly from the lack of people taking 
over responsibility.

Now seeing that there is interest within the MOTU community to not "just do 
the work" but also raise voices in shaping universe is imo a healthy change.

I'm pretty confident that it's a good thing that MOTU's take over more 
responsibility. I also believe that this won't result in bad decisions coming 
out of motu-meetings: In case of a really bogus decision, MC could still 
interfere, however I trust all MOTUs enough to know when to call for help or 
defer an issue to MC.

However this brings up the question, what the relationship between MC and MOTU 
meeting should be (as we actually never decided on that one yet;).

IMHO MC should step in exactly where MOTU meeting/discussions on the mailing 
list will lead to no decision being taking, or at points that need attention 
but nobody seems to care about.

What do you think?
