Bug#354560: ITP: iaxmodem -- software modem with IAX2 connectivity

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Julien BLACHE <jblache@debian.org>

* Package name    : iaxmodem
  Version         : 0.0.13
  Upstream Author : Lee Howard <faxguy@howardsilvan.com>
* URL             : http://iaxmodem.sf.net
* License         : GPL
  Description     : software modem with IAX2 connectivity

 IAXmodem is a software modem written in C that uses an IAX channel (commonly
 provided by an Asterisk PBX system) instead of a traditional phone line and
 uses a DSP library instead of DSP hardware chipsets.
 IAXmodem was originally conceived to function as a fax modem usable with
 HylaFAX, and it does that well. However IAXmodem also has been known to
 function with mgetty+sendfax and efax.

Note that iaxmodem includes modified versions of libiax2 and spandsp, both
libraries being GPL-licensed and statically linked into the iaxmodem binary.

The packaged version of the libraries cannot be used, either because they're
not current enough (as in "CVS HEAD 2 hours ago") or because of the
modifications applied for iaxmodem.

I am currently finishing up the packaging and feeding my patches to make
iaxmodem a daemon upstream.
