Daniel Pocock
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel-announce/2014/01/msg00004.html";>announced</a>
the availability of a <a href="https://rtc.debian.org/";>SIP service</a>
for Debian Members. This service, launched during the mini-DebConf in Paris,
offers real time audio and video conversation through the browser (with WebRTC)
or diverse range of traditional softphones, including Empathy, Jitsi, Lumicall,
Linphone, CSIPSimple.

There is a
<a href="https://freephonebox.net";>phonebooth</a>
<a href="http://lists.debian.org/debian-project/2014/01/msg00102.html";>available</a>
for people wanting to reach Debian Members
through this service.

For more information on how to use this service, please consult the
<a href="http://wiki.debian.org/UnifiedCommunications/DebianDevelopers";>dedicated
wiki page</a>.

This service has been made possible by a significant effort by the DSA
team over the last few weeks.

The Debian project is encouraging other free software projects, including
Debian derivatives to emulate what Debian did so that we can all call each other.
