I expect you'll ignore this as much as my other mail, but
all of these are ephemeral in nature instead of offering
a persistent record -- that's why we submit minutes of the
Hangouts to the plasma-devel mailing list, for example.

A code review website maintains a persistent record and is
therefore used differently, and should be subject to
different requirements.

For that reason code review discussions on IRC often lead
to "please put this on ReviewBoard".


Cheers,
Eike
