I like Zulip a lot. I've been using it extensively and the notion of
topic (like a email subjet) is a big +1 for me and for any more casual
lurker. Also it reduces the proliferation of one off/single subject
channel that a lurker always miss in tools like Slack.
Granted Zulip topics are a bit offsetting for the first 5 posts. And yes
their mobile client is really bad. But the desktop client is really
Slack is slack, I don't particularly enjoy the UI but people seem to like
it. Their optional discussion thread model (within a channel) is a
disaster if you ask me. And, yes you need CPU and RAM in excess.

I quite like Zulip, but I must admit it doesn't do much to make life easy
for new users. This choice of theirs to make topics mandatory (or at least
*seemingly* mandatory), in particular, is very likely to confuse new users,
be it Hibernate Users joining to look for help, or even people in our team.
So even though I like it, I think a lot of people won't, so they won't use
it much, which kind of defeats the purpose of a communication tool.
Slack would do the trick, I guess, and since most of our rooms are public
we don't care that they probably use the data for their own profit (with
such a trove of data, I would be surprised if they didn't).
There are alternative solutions, though. Of course there are the clones of
Slack such Rocket Chat and Mattermost. I just created a RocketChat
There is also gitter, which apparently some people in our team have been
starting to use: https://gitter.im/hibernate/hibernate-orm
. No JIRA
integration there, though.
I think in the end it will all come down to what people in our team are
most comfortable with. Whatever the technology and its future, what we need
most is everyone to be happy with it. We can deal with yet another switch
in the future, but in the meantime we need everyone to use whatever we
picked. And in this regard, it would help if people made their preferences
