It has been suggested before, but the general consensus was not to provide 
public logs.  To do so would require making participants aware of the logging, 
and could discourage people from chatting openly, or forever preserve in 
history something which someone said in the heat of the moment and regrets 
later, say.

I do agree that it could be valuable perhaps, though, as there's lots of 
helpful discussion on #dancer.

You're welcome to do your own logging from your IRC client, but we ask that 
you don't publish the logs you generate publically.
