I'll ask the question again: what are the « evolving needs » that are

I don't understand this question, and lost the context too if it was addressed to me.
The fact is, Zulip simply isn't used by python-dev. It didn't fly, and could be due to multiple reasons, not just social ones. Let's not assume that social or technical factors _alone_ lead a community to adopt something.
I was trying to gauge, if we do need a chat system, and the responses are diverse, but it seems to me that it will be welcome addition for _many_, who might find a solution, easy / convenient to hop-in and chat.
