[uf-discuss] vjournal?

Perhaps ironically, I would think that the "discussion log" portion  
of meeting minutes maps to hAtom.

I've done a pretty exhaustive search on the history of VJOURNAL and  
hCalendar, and it looks like it was brought up last December by  
Tantek for consideration as a blog post format, and the WikiRemnants  
remain: <http://microformats.org/wiki/blog-post-formats#VJOURNAL>

Later, at the end of February Ryan added "make sure we explicitly  
disallow 'vjournal'" to the hCalendar page, but I can find no traces  
of a discussion around that.  Perhaps there was an IRC session?

I'm concerned that a "let's consider VJOURNAL for blog posts" -> "no,  
Atom entries are better" -> "alright, kill VJOURNAL" path was  
followed that never gave poor vjournal a chance to stand up and  
defend itself as a description of moments that should not be  
described as "published."

Of course, I'm the new kid on the list, so I'm likely missing something.
