In my team is very usual to analyse some issue/situation/etc using a chat tool. Talking about possible implementations, about concepts, algorithm, etc, etc. Then is usefull store that chat like an attachment in the ticket.

What about chating on the ticket inside trac? Using a chat tool integrated to trac (similar gMail that stores chats over gTalk) The conversation will be automatically stores in ticket chat history. tChat ?

I'm a big fan of this idea. To be most useful, I think the chat might need to be project-wide to allow folks to be signed-into the project, but when someone starts a chat from a ticket or wiki page, that part of the chat log can be pinned to that area of the site.

Tickets and mailing lists, 'asynch' discussion mode, is fine but irc/xmpp is a very important ingredient in development today. We don't bridge this well and we end-up with knowledge that's buried in the chats only organized by date.

This appears to exist already, though I haven't used it. Take a look at osimons, or go directly to TracTalkPlugin.

It might be nice to have a t-h.o stub page that points to the TracTalkPlugin.

have a look at this it is a old google style chat for Trac. It also saves the chats into text files that can be then attached to tickets.
