With my mentor hat on: it's fine to use IRC in Apache projects, but
that should be considered as nothing more than coffee machine
discussions: as soon as discussions become of general interest, or
lead to decisions, they should be summarized and maybe voted upon

I think some projects post IRC logs to their dev mailing lists at
regular intervals, that's also good (with an [irc] subject header for
example) depending on how much that's used.

The basic rule is "at Apache, everything important must happen on the dev list".
