I always chat as it it was logged, even in IRC: It is easy to log, so
people are logging. There may not be "official" logs, but there definitely
are logs.

Quassel e.g. has logging built in, to name just one IRC tool popular I  the
Qt crowd.

That is true: Choosing a chat tool also implicitly select a target audience.

What is the target audience the Qt community wants to engage with?
