I disagree. The MC has been in place for less then a month now. While it
might look like "every decision" was made by the MC it has been
relatively few.

The MC is in charge to help finding decisions, thus everybody agreed on
the MC being responsible for policy decisions, not to aggregate power,
but as a measure to come to a decision in a timely fashion. None of the
decisions that were made were without a broad consensus among the MOTUs.

I said before: I don't expect policy decisions to come up often, so
"interference" of the MC will be relatively little.

Stating that the influence of the MC is demotivating is in my opinion
quite exaggerated. Who else feels that way?

Have a nice day,
