Subject Discussions on IRC
Date Fri, 06 Feb 2009 19:55:30 GMT
Just to clarify for the sake of the community as a whole, any  
important decisions about the code and project MUST be discussed on  
the mailing list.

IRC, chat, etc are fine for helping each other understand the issues  
and so forth, but ultimately project discussions should move to the  
mailing list. IRC is too transient and hard to follow for those not  
actively participating, and the mailing list helps ensure that the  
knowledge and understanding is passed around, and so others in the  
community can weigh in with their own ideas and concerns. It is  
important that we not only have a open community process, but that we  
actively promote and encourage it. IRC tends to not do that for  
decision making and consensus building.
