[asterisk-dev] app_meetme call for testing: Roll call, eject all, mute all, record in-conf

To me personally, there are some stuff missing in ConfBridge which is more important than some menus - there are no AMI events similar to MeetmeJoin/MeetmeLeave/MeetmeMuted. Which means people who use any kind of automation and/or Web UI cannot convert their code for the new application.

It also look like there is not equivalent of T (talker detection) option too. And I guess talker optimization is also missing. And unlike the MeetmeJoin like events I do not see how these can be implemented - it takes someone with good knowledge of the new bridging API architecture to implement it.

So even if ConfBridge is a better thing from architectural/design standpoint it is just a bare bones application at the moment. Not so many of us will be able to use it.

Perhaps.  However, the new bridging platform is just a C API.  The only 
place it is exposed for usage is the ConfBridge application.  ConfBridge 
is architecturally superior to MeetMe.  John's point is that the sooner 
we can migrate the ability to have feature X, Y, and Z with ConfBridge, 
the sooner ConfBridge becomes a replacement instead of an alternative to
