Hi what are the remainders on this one at the moment?
The blocker is/was having a new enough speex in RHEL to support
app_conference, which requires speex 1.2. However, after the recent
Debian SSL debacle, the resulting discussion of patches in
Fedora-space, and the difficulty in keeping the app_conference patch
updated, I think that I'm leaning towards dropping the app_conference
patch from the Asterisk package (and probably a couple of others as
well). I've already commented the patch out of the current F9 and
rawhide package. This decision was made easier because I believe that
Digium is working on a new conferencing app that doesn't require a
kernel module to operate (which is the reason that I added
app_conference in the first place). Unfortunately I don't think that
it's supposed to be released until Asterisk 1.6.1 and Asterisk 1.6.0
is still in beta.
However, I haven't tried compiling the Asterisk 1.6 packages for EPEL
yet so there may be other issues that need taking care of.
