As per

   | Resolved: That the CSSWG's IRC channel shall be ... logged. ... That
   | any important information in the logs MUST be summarized and forwarded
   | to the mailing list (along with, but not substituted by, a pointer to
   | the IRC logs and/or a pasted snippet) by the people involved in that
   | discussion so that no one needs to track the IRC logs to keep up with
   | the group.

please summarize the results of the discussion here--and paste a snippet
of the IRC log since we don't have a logger on IRC yet.
