This will largely be determined by whatever decisions are made
upstream in the GNOME project. (Chat is integrated into several key
GNOME modules - such as the shell and the control center - so it's not
simply a matter of switching packages around.)
That said, I'm sure that the GNOME release team would welcome input on
the subject. (They have discussed this subject recently themselves.)
I wonder if they reached a consensus?
From what I learned, I tend to think Pidgin might be the currently
for default IM in Workstation. It is better to offer our (new) users a
with some development than integrating a dead project IMO. Tox or GNOME
Chat might be the future, but does not seem mature for like F23.
PS: Actually I find myself have not used desktop IM for some time...
