Since we use Matrix for the design team I am wondering about your point re:
matrix being less active than zulip? I've been a Matrix patreon for a long
time and Matthew and Amandine and the rest of the team give solid regular
video updates and have always seemed consistently active to me even more so
now that they've picked up some rather large customer accounts, but I might
have missed something.
I really trust your opinion / judgment so I wanted to learn more!
Well, that was just eyeballing the github status and from some zulip
pages. In retrospect, it's really not an easy thing to say without being
involved in both communities... I mean I have no idea where matrix work
is going on (outside commits, which is probibly a poor measure).
Matrix definitely has advantages over IRC, but I kind of feel like it's
not gone far enough... the zulip threading seems like a step up over
that. (Of course I have not used zulip day to day either).
Anyhow, I'll see about setting up some demo or proof of concept and
invite folks to take a look when time permits.
