Subject Re: IRC Meeting Times
Date Sat, 08 Sep 2012 16:48:34 GMT
How can people who do not use IRC participate in these meetings, or the
discussions held at them?

It is important that community discussions take place on the mailing list.
And where they take place off the mailing list, that they are summarised on
the mailing list. It is also important that people who do not use IRC are
able to partake in discussions.

One option is to hold meetings on IRC, post a summary of what was
discussed, and then invite people on the mailing list to continue the
discussion. But discussions must be copied to the mailing list, and people
must have a chance to participate.
