The "here" links to, which

As such, I don't understand how it can be accused of being "closed source".

Yes, you're right. However, the most important thing Ilmari is pointing
is about the decision process that shouldn't be on IRC or Telegram or
any other media but on mailing lists.
I like that the community is able to use the tool it prefers to
communicate, that opens the possibilities and makes our projects more
reachable. ESC is not only using hangout, but also phones on Talkyoo,
one language is leading its translation on Facebook, etc... whatever
they are at ease with and brings people together.
What we should be very careful with is to report on the lists, make the
decision process available on the lists and keep an archive of the
activities on the lists. That way each new comer has access to the
information at the same level others have and there is a memory of what
has been done.
