IMO the key point is "if it didn't happen on the dev list it didn't happen".

Coffee machine conversations, private emails and chat, phone calls and
IRC all happen.

What's important is that for any type of out-of-band discussion to be
summarized on the dev list as soon as they have impact on the project,
code or community [1]. And all decisions must happen on the dev list.

Sending daily IRC logs to the dev list is fine, but if decisions
happen on IRC that's wrong - the dev list has to be the central
channel where all the important information is found, and all
decisions happen.
