Hey, just to add to the list of options.
Recently GitLab purchased and open sourceed gitter https://gitter.im
>From the list of features it does look great and is being used by tons of
open source projects, mostly in the web development field.
You can self host it but from reading a bit it looks like you need quite a
bit of server resources: there were like 3 database servers to install.
Another options would be https://www.phacility.com/phabricator/conpherence/
which is integrated into phabricator. It is only web based for now and it
is being used by some of the guys at MediaWiki
I don't feel like these could be the best choices but I am just sending
them here because they went unnoticed.
