That by itself may inject some transparency (as opposed to openness; they are different things, and I'm more interested in transparency than openness, as I suspect some others are as well).  That is if those IRC logs *can* be published, or if it's desired and allowed for them to be published.  One other project I was involved in, where I helped maintain the PostgreSQL database backend driver for the AOLserver multithreaded application/webserver, also did much work over chat, but it was AIM instead of IRC; the logs were archived and browseable/searchable.  With the developers spread over multiple timezones it wasn't the most productive thing in the world.

Traditionally the view taken for channel loggers has been that there are 
people who spend time there, are well known and dont want logs kept. So 
it was advised that use irssi in screen, lurk and build your own logs;

Also, the infra channel is not public, for obvious reasons. All 
security, setup and donor specific conversations take place there - and 
making that public is going to be extremely hard.
