As I said above, IM of any sort is only really useful if enough people are in the same time zone, and actually participating, but for a project with low participation by "experts" it is a poor support mechanism.
Although maybe it is useful for the folks cooperating doing releases (whatever happened to 1.38 BTW?)
Well, at least with IM chat rooms you automatically get the history to your clients while you went away, in that regard it's no worse than email or github.
Hmmm, possibly, as I've never used it I don't know how well it might work for support.
It is also nice that github, discourse, zulip etc keep conversations together, does it do that or mix them up like IRC does?
Anyhow whatever we decide, we need something that supports clients without effort (like a browser not a specific client) and needs no admin/maintenance effort since the Geany organisation has none available as Enrico pointed out above.
Time zones is a general problem which cannot be solved.
