He doesn't answer. I send several mail since... I think december, but got no
response. He wanted to take care of pwlib and openh323 (based upon patches
from me and Steve), but the PR rotted away. So I decided to go ahead and
committed the current pwlib an openh323 ports. I also have a patch for
gnomemeeting (should be in http://www.Leidinger.net/FreeBSD/port-patches/).
It doesn't work in all cases (if you don't have a video input, it refuses to
work) with the current pwlib/openh323 combination. With the old
pwlib/openh323 combination it should be able to work fine.
Personally I don't have interest in gnomemeeting/ekiga. I just want to tell,
that whoever is willing to maintain it, is free to do so. Any committer
should just go ahead and commit a change. He hasn't to wait for a timeout,
since we're already way past a timeout (except kwm responded to portmgr but
not to me (portmgr send a ping to him)).
Regarding ekiga: maybe a repocopy from gnomemeeting is needed.
