We could improve the situation without much trouble.

If you make a significant point (in your assessment) and want to be 
sure it's recorded accurately, type it into IRC yourself.  Too many 
people (like me) talk fast and assume the scribe is a professional 
court stenographer with a perfect phone line.

Encourage the scribe to 'just dump' as much transcript as they can 
fill in otherwise.

If people take the trouble to get on queue (q+) pay more attention to 
them than to random statements.

There are probably a few more ways we could get the transcript and 
minutes much better....
