gnomemeeting (renamed to Ekiga) has been part of GNOME for long time.

> Could  you please develop further?

We are doing it for free. In the past, we used to have it (gnomemeeting)  
in x11/gnome2 but we had to remove it from x11/gnome2. Because of a lot of  
problems. If anyone take it over and maintain it very well, then we might  
put it back in.

Sorry. :-)

Correct, it seems. Maybe it's better to say that there are very very a  
few, not nobody such as you are insteresting in.

Why private? Why not maintain it by yourself in the open public? bland has  
added a good reply. If you have no insterest to maintain it, then it goes  
back to the same thing that we have no insterest to maintain it either.

The gnomemeetings has been renamed to ekiga. Therefore, it is a same
