At the “goal post BOF” during Akademy I proposed building a real free software, 
simply working modern chat solution as a possible milestone project. I would 
like to add to the requirements:
based on open standards (e.g., Unicode emojis but no custom ones)
coherent chat experience (e.g., a user sees the same messages in channels and 
chats no matter which of the multiple devices she connects from and when)

I am pretty sure that no solution exists that fits the bill 100%. This may be 
an opportunity for the KDE community to shine and build something that is not 
open core (like Mattermost) or fake-free (like Telegram) and actually 
interoperable. And it needs a great UX, which is exactly our mission.
