My vote is for Gitter because the OS and EP development takes place nearby on GitHub and the majority of the questions here are directed towards those.

I would also suggest that the developers create software-specific rooms. For example, I could create and did create an UnmetHours room from my GitHub account...

https://gitter.im/MatthewSteen/UnmetHours

...but I don't necessarily think that I should own this community's chat room. Furthermore, I think it would be nice to have software-specific rooms, for example:

https:// gitter.im/NREL/UnmetHours-OpenStudio https:// gitter.im/NREL/UnmetHours-EnergyPlus https:// gitter.im/@mostaphaRoudsari/UnmetHours-Honeybee

2021 Update

I think we should use the Matrix open source specification. Gitter was acquired by Element in 2020, which coincidentally uses it.

So, I've created a Building Performance Simulation space on Matrix as a start. There are bridges to both Gitter and Slack, which I may try to implement if there's interest.

The main features I think are important are the following.

  1. Free
  2. Open source
  3. No message limits
