Right.  I hope someone find time to make this work. :)

I mean both one-on-one video talks and conferences with more than two
participants.  The former solve a need I have privately, while the
latter solve needs I have professionally.

Btw, is the jitsi desktop client any good?  Tried to install it in
unstable, but it refused to install (bug #789038).  Seem to be missing
libjitsi which was rejected and not re-uploaded with fixes.

I do not expect to have time for more than 'apt install tool', on my and
my families machines, to get it working.  If it require more than that,
I will just have to leave testing for later. :(

Happy hacking
