This is another reason I like to send zodbot's minutes (as well as the
URLs he publishes) to the list.  That way the flow looks like this:

* Idea goes on list for discussion
* After discussion, goes to meeting for general consensus/approval
* Minutes indicate said consensus (using "#agreed <stuff>" and/or
  "#action <someone> <do the thing that means it was approved")
* Minutes go to list in the email with (or following) URLs, and no one
  is surprised because topic was fairly and transparently handled
