I'd like to see all of these ported over the OPAL, and I'm totally 
prepared to put in the work to do it, but I can only do it with *your* 

Given that you know the code best, what specific feature (i.e. what 
source files) would you recommend I start with?

I don't see that any projects have been orphaned by the recent creation 
of OpalVoip, or at least, they are no more orphaned than they were before.

As you have correctly pointed out elsewhere, Robert and I effectively 
stopped working on OpenH323 quite some time ago. Our decision to move 
Opal onto a new site does not change that, so any projects that that are 
using OpenH323 will continue to use it, or can use h323plus.

I'm also a little confused by the reference to "executive decision". 
Robert and I have received many requests by Opal users over the past few 
years to move the code to it's own site. We have put it off for all this 
time but we finally decided to do it. If anything, we probably should 
have done it much earlier :)

Our decision to create OpalVoip was no more "executive" than your 
decision to create h323plus, and was probably done for much the same 
reasons :)

Everything will be in context, and cross-posts may happen :)
