In the W3C all meetings are held with an IRC and logs are available.
For the semantic web group the logs are always public available and I 
used the search of the IRC logs often.
If overall advantage if you give advice, you do not have to repeat it on 
the next day, but can refer to the log.

You might want to mention the logging in the title subject, when 
entering the IRC channel, so someone as Andrew, who does not really like 
logging, can be aware that it is a logged channel.
