You still haven't explained why e.g. Zulip (which has a modern Web UI, a very well-thought threading mechanism, several clients, many integrations, is widely used, and is open source), doesn't « address our evolving needs ».
- Zulip didn't take-off as well as we intended for python (core-dev) group. If it had, this discussion wouldn't have been necessary.
I think Zulip didn't catch on because most core devs prefer communicating on mailing lists for technical issues.
If the intent of this new core-dev chat is just a social "how are you doing" sort of thing, then I think Zulip (or most anything else) would work fine.
