OK, that was a misinterpretation by me when Jan said he did not need 90% of
OPAL code. I extrapolated that to mean he did not use much of OpenH323
either. And I was unaware that they have been using the "plus" branch, I
incorrectly assumed they were on the trunk.

Oh, now things are getting nasty. When accusations like this happen it is

And why are they not in OPAL? Because effort is divided between two

That is not what I meant. I did not mention OpenH323 features explicitly.
And if things had gone the way I had originally envisioned with all new
development being in OPAL then this statement would be 100% true. As it is,
it is only true for non-H.323 features.

There is that work "fork" again, even though I have tried hard to remove it
from perceptions. The real fork happened FOUR YEAR AGO. The move to a
different repository is just admin.

Agreed. But accusations of deliberately misleading people could not go
