No need to wait.  I have been using Paroli as my daily phone software on
FSO MS5 for almost 2 weeks. It has been extremely stable. A bunch of
functionality is not there yet but the one basic thing that has "just
worked" is as a phone. Dialing works, answering works, ringing works.

I was updating from GIT daily until a couple of days ago when the package
in unstable became available.  I checked last night and the most recent
package was up to the very last commit in GIT so that synchronization is
working well.

I am interested in helping out with the project initially as a tester but
with code in the future as I figure this is a good excuse to learn python.
I haven't to date as there was nothing approachable or interesting enough.

The first thing I want to look at is the scrolling of contacts and
messages. Currently, trying to capture the thumb on the scroll bar is
exceedingly tedious. It will likely take me a couple of weeks to get
productive as I fit this in with the rest of my work and life.
