Sorry, i guess i kind of got side tracked from my point...

As far as i know, no decisions have been made unilaterally off list -- but 
there has been a decent amount of rumblings about the inappropriateness of 
private emails, and private discussions at peoples jobs, and people talking on IRC.

The point i'm trying to make is that none of these things are bad, and no 
one is at fault for having these conversations in any of these places -- 
as long as they are just discussions, and brainstorming, and sharing of 
opinions, etc... --- not attempts at making decisions off list.

My secondary point: Even if we start logging IRC, it can not, and must 
not, be used for making decisions about the project.  An IRC log is not a 
substitute for the mailing list.
