Actually, I'd like to drill into that.

It's not a matter of *recording* a decision taken in a chat, but recording
the *content* of the discussion, along with possible options to move
forward. Discussions can start spontaneously in a chat, regardless of who's
actually present. It would be unfair for decisions to be taken in absence
of others who simply weren't around at the time.

The decision itself should be taken in the mailing list – thus giving the
entire community to voice out their opinion. If the changes are if the
changes are substantial, structural or of significant impact, a VOTE is
recommended by The Apache Way [1], and it's useful for the poster to
indicate if lazy consensus applies. For smaller things, it suffices to open
a JIRA task and explain what was done and why.

Sorry to be a PITA; but I'm sharing what has worked in other projects I'm
involved in for the benefit and evolution of Ignite.
