I'm concerned that an incubating project is using an exclusionary
communication channel such as IRC right from the get-go. People who are in
the "wrong" time zone, or people who don't have access to IRC or are simply
unavailable at the "right" time, will be excluded from the discussion. While
I saw that the "minutes" of the last meeting were posted to the dev list, I
also saw, in those minutes, that the decision to have biweekly IRC chats was
itself made on IRC... And IRC transcripts such as the one that was posted
are very hard to read, making it much more difficult for those not
participating at the time to get the gist of what actually happened.

IMHO, all of the discussions, especially this early on, should be happening
on the mailing lists, to encourage more people to participate, and thus help
grow the community.
