Basically, QUIP extends the governance by formalising decisions. The 
governance says decisions are made by consensus and meritocracy on the mailing 
list. But once the discussion ends, how do we know what we agreed upon? And 
two years later, how do we find out what we had decided?

Can you remember the list of C++11 features we're allowed to use? We had a 
discussion on the mailing list.

Do you remember why we decided not to have the Standard Library in our ABI? 
That discussion happened in 2012.

The mailing list archives are searchable, but that doesn't mean it's easy to 
find what you're looking for.
