Agreed. The discussions should not be kept on irc.

On the same token, irc is a GREAT resource, why should not those who have
use of it actually make use of it? Especially if someone wants to
coordinate the effort (should not be one of the candidates I think) and
collect questions from people who can't make it.
It's be a really good thing to do IMO, especially if the logs are
published here. I also think someone collecting questions for those who
can't attend is a good idea.
