Dear Nancy,

I too support Christian, the MEGACO list is a heavy hitter when it
comes to an overload of messages in a mail box. Plus not all
issues are common, and one needs only a shap shot to get
the idea where it is going. The issues with Sigtan would have been
better understood if we had the same service.

Thank you,
