I have nothing against having such discussions, but I think it's
important to make sure that everyone has access to them. Part of the
issue with D3D is that the design discussions are taking place on a
"private" list, so apart from the handful of people who know about
that list, nobody has any idea what's going on. I'm worried that there
would be the same problem with IRC: only people who happen to hang
around at the right time would have the information. We could of
course publish IRC logs but that's not exactly convenient to
read... So I'm not sure it would be better than the discussions we
already have on wine-devel.
