This is a meeting that effects the entire mirror structure and as such I
felt that those who might not be able to attend the meeting for any
number of reasons: time zone miss-matches, connectivity issues, real
life, work, they didn't know about the meeting for whatever reason,
would still be able to walk back through the log of what was discussed
with all of the view points on the discussion.

In a lot of cases the discussion is a lot more useful than the final
decided outcome.

I would argue this is such a case where understanding the issues and
being able to bring things up after the fact (on the mailing list
perhaps) for further discussion would be a good thing.  That's all.
