Ok, I see that I was unclear.  What I said was that the act of making  
the decision must happen on the list.   So the pointer to the IRC  
discussion is the background to a mailing list discussion to actually  
make the decision.   During that discussion I'd expect other voices to  
be heard, issues to be raised, etc.   I didn't mean that all you had  
to do was send the pointer to indicate that a decision had been made.
