The interesting feature in Ekiga that GnomeMeeting did not have is
support for the SIP protocol, that means you can use ekiga to make
calls over  asterisk.  So I  won't be the only  person interested,
because Open-Source PABX is a hot topic.

This is a misunderstanding: I think ekiga belongs to Gnome, that's
the point.   Now, deciding who  is the maintainer does  not really
matter.  I don't feel embarrassed to maintain yet another port.

Let's see what kwm thinks of it.
