SIP Router Project - The Meeting In Karlsruhe

Because of taking several days off, a complete report might show up a bit later, now a (short) summary...

First, many thanks to 1&1 for hosting the event and everyone that participated in such short notice. There were representatives from 10 companies:

After going in short introduction and presentation of the goals from the point of view of each project (SIP Express Router (SER) and Kamailio (OpenSER)), we focused on:
- identification of potential points of conflicts and how to get to a resolution in such case
- code integration for common layer of the first phase
- future development and proposals of new features
- management of the larger eco-system that includes related projects and business entities

I will do several posts detailing what was discussed and proposed there for SIP Router project in few days. meanwhile, the outlines:
- it is hard to avoid conflicts just by some clear and strict rules, so the common sense should lead the collaboration and discussions
- GIT repository should be up in several days so the work can start, with a time line of 2-3 months from now to get core and tm in a very good shape of integration
- another meeting shall be set in about 3 months time, to allow enough time for people to be able to attend, adjust the development and look more deep at the future. While a lot of focus in the next months will be on integration, development of new features won't stop -- for example, steps to a partial asynchronous processing are undertaking, couple of new modules are planned for release, several other modules to bring new functionalities
- we should encourage and promote the development of related applications, like web interfaces, management tools, applications servers -- they add value for community and business
