Hi Kurt.

Well, I'd like to be the maintainer and get it into shape. I'm still having problems with Kamailio 4.2.x from your port. It needs restarting all the time, even with WITH_PRESENCE and WITH_TLS disabled. I had no problems with 4.1.0 compiled manually on FreeBSD 8.3 with GCC 4.6.

I like the looks of OpenSIPS more. It has LTS, stable and dev branches. The documentation and website seems better. I heard Google uses OpenSIPS for Google Voice, and just found out that Grandstream (my preferred SIP phone manufacturer) uses OpenSIPS for their VoIP service. There's other reasons too, but I won't digress too much.

I think my problems with Kamailio stem from building with Clang. My 4.1 installation was rock solid. But there may have been other modules involved.
I really want an OpenSIPS port, and I'm going to work on it solidly for the next few days if I need to. I just need to solve this staging issue.
