VoIP+IAX Program Theory for OM

Aside from those who run their own asterisk server, remember those who  
just use an iax itsp!

Anyways, I have been working on the core and backend library  
(iaxclient) of mokoiax.

You can read about a release I did of a command line based version for  
the openmoko (installable through ipkg) on http://bkruse.com.

I am also looking for developers.

To give a quick idea, I started working on a gtk version (mokoiax)  
designed specifically for the moko when I then realized why not tie it  
into the dialer application itself?

Anyways, let me know your thoughts.

Let me know if you want to help by emailing me at this address or bkruse at digium.com
( this is in no way affiliated with digium, I just happen to work  
there :) )
