Next Kamailio IRC Devel Meeting

To sync properly for the next major release of Kamailio (v5.1.0) and ongoing development, we propose an IRC devel meeting for next week, on Wednesday, Sep 27, 2017. An alternative would be the following day, Sep 28, or if there are many devs that want to attend and cannot do it these days, we can look at another date. Just propose new day and time via sr-dev mailing list.
The meeting is going to be held as usual in the #kamailio channel on freenode.net IRC network.
A wiki page was created to collect the topics that are wanted to be discussed:
Fell free to add there or reply to the mailing list with what you think it is relevant to discuss.

    • Multiple contexts
