[Asterisk-Dev] MeetMe Improvement

I think the functionality that you describe will prove to be very 
useful - providing Asterisk with functionality to rival other 
conference systems. One additional item that I would like to see is 
integrate some streaming bridges e.g. allow conferences to be attended 
by people via a stream rather than a phone or SIP connection. I know 
the Ices project is working on this too.

Asterisk is well positioned to demonstrate what can be done when 
Internet and telephony are seamlessly integrated.

Another nice application would be web based management for a conference 
- alowing the manager to see who is attending and control the 
conference eg mute speakers etc.

Please let me know how you progress - I am happy to assist you with 
this project too.
