Somebody wise once said: if it didn't happen on list, it didn't
happen. (I think it was Ron Fielding)

IRCers must make sure that there is no decision making on the IRC
channel. Decision must happen on list.
Some other projects (I heard) make some important chat protocols
public, ooo-dev could past chats to issues or as attachments to votes.

Anyway, I am not a huge fan of using IRC for the reasons Ingrid
mentioned. But sometimes it really helps and if we make sure nobody is
excluded by default, I guess it is fine
