Quite the contrary. The TC was never actually asked to rule on this issue.
It is standard that the TC rules on issues when the normal processes have
broken down in some way. As described in detail in #727708, the TC chose not
to rule on it because the normal policy process was not broken -- in fact
the normal policy process had barely even started. The TC is not the
project's normal policy process any more than a GR is the project's normal
I would add that picking at a sore like this *will* end up breaking the
normal policy process; we're dealing with self-fulfilling prophecies here.
