At this point the wiki holds the logs and transcriptions. I consider
that this solution has room for improvements:
1) It's suboptimal to copy a mixture of direct quotations (=log
excerpts) and summaries. There's got to be a technical solution geared
for that task.
2) Although the development process should be as transparent as
possible it may not be desirable in any circumstance to provide
public irc logs including names etc.

Sounds great. How and where do we implement this? Is a simple
bash-script ready for download from blagblagblag.org and announced on
the forum sufficient?

Ya whoot? Crabgrass / we.riseup.net/BLAG ? No, nothing going on there.
Nevertheless I would love to use it, especially for things like IRC
logs, which might be considered as more sensitive or tasks that are in
need of a determined audience.
I think noldrin had issues with this system. Do these still persist?
