this is an excellent point, you've just made me reconsider my thoughts
on IRC logging.

One thing that does work is the gtk+ team meeting minutes. It would be
great if once an important discussion has occured in #gnome-design,
someone could provide 'digests' of these to a mailing list. Or, if the
discussions are spread out over a longer time period, a two-line
summary could be posted to a wiki when something important is decided.

I recognise that's a non-trivial amount of extra work.
