I appreciate your wish to get clarity and an accurate record, but I think need to say that making audio recordings of a call without the people on the call being aware is, at the very least, a breach of etiquette. Perhaps there is something in  the W3C or CSS documents that means participants have given general permission to be recorded (and if so, I have not found it); but even if they have, we should know when it's actually happening. If participants have not given such permission, then permission was needed, in advance, I think, and without it, no recording should have occurred.

Also, the scribing and the minutes are the record of the call (officially); if you feel that they could be improved, comments and emendations are always welcome I think.  But I don't think it helps us to have two records, one official and one unofficial.  I think it's also possible to volunteer to scribe and make minutes, if you feel, in advance of a meeting (as you clearly did here), that you would want a record that met some criteria of your own.

I am not happy with either the audio recording or the 'duplicate' (if unofficial) minutes.
