Well, the more you create chat services for a single purpose, the less you're likely to actually find a community there. Why do you want to use Gitter if Zulip and IRC already exist?
The goal is not the tool, but the community chat, specifically, core-dev chat, and to find if most feel 'OK' to give a shot at chat again.
I notice, I use Slack and Discord for specific purposes, as there is channel for the topic I am interested in, community presence, and convenience.
The tool, could be determined based what many feel comfortable with.
- Zulip and IRC for core-dev, have been tried, and not been successful.
- Gitter, Slack, or Discord for Core-Development needs have not been tried yet.
#python-dev on IRC has been wildly successful until perhaps 2015. Personally, I would have no problem using IRC if wanted to connect to a chat for CPython at all.
Similarly, I would have no problem using Zulip. I would even say that Zulip is by far the best chat system I've ever used, and the alternatives don't come near. Its threading system is really superior to everything else.
The idea that if people don't use IRC and Zulip, then we should try another chat system, sounds like magical thought. What kind of properties do Slack, Gitter or Discord have that Zulip doesn't? They are actually quite annoying in my experience.
