The committees which have been formed are useful, but they pick and
choose their members on a case by case basis (or perhaps I should say
"face by face") -- cf. GerardM's rejected membership application to
the Special Projects committee. At least during the transitional
phase, the amount of bureauracy is even worse than it was at the time
we were ruled by the Board and the Board alone.
Eric, I believe you are incorrect in the statement above that there is
no community pressure for openess, participatory processes, and
transparency within the Wikimedia Foundation.
The pressure is the non participation.
