Welcome Craig

h323plus currently contains a large array of features such as directory
services (H.350),app sharing (H.239) conference controls (H.230), SNMP
(H.341) etc which you did not mention that are not currently available in
Opal. As I offered previously to you or anyone else, you are quite welcome
to port any of these ideas to opal (like my H.460.x work craig mentioned)
with my support so as to provide a more compelling argument for migration to

But honestly I think you should direct your questions to the various
projects that were "orphaned" on the executive decision to migrate to
OpalVoIP and plead the case to them.

You are most welcome to participate on the h323plus mailing list and provide
input etc but please try and refrain from touting other projects, it was
frowned apon on the openH323 list, so it should be no different now.

Here is a specific question for those people using OpenH323 (and now
H323Plus) instead of OPAL.

What would have to changed in, or added to, OPAL in order for you to
move from OpenH323 (other than all of H.45x and H.46x stuff we are
already committed to migrating) ?

In other words, if you configure Opal with only H.323 support (which you
can do now by running "./configure --disable-sip --disable-iax", what
makes it so different from OpenH323 that it is worth splitting our joint
efforts and maintaining two codebases?

If you can answer this question, I promise that the Opal project will do
it's very best to fulfill the requirements so we can all work on one
codebase rather than two.
