>From my (limited) experience, voice-only is used in projects where the
development team want to ensure they have a channel in which they can
communicate efficiently and avoid more general discussion. It's
perhaps a little frustrating for non-developers but at least having
read-only access to the channel allows them to see (?) discussion as
it occurs. If the Xfce development team want to change this so that
everyone has a voice, I'm sure that would be welcomed by many in the
community. As has been suggested, perhaps having set rules which apply
to the IRC channel would be a good idea.

On a side note, are all Xfce-related IRC channels logged?
