I won't deny that GnomeMeeting is hard to build if you are unexperimented and
depending on the CVS version of OpenH323 is nearly the only way to make it
evolve, sadly. Their API is changing often, very often. However, we are doing
our best to provide packages for openh323 and pwlib and GnomeMeeting for the CVS
versions on Once OpenH323 is installed, GnomeMeeting is
not harder than anything else to build.

There is the 20 pages long FAQ on the website, and a manual is 95% done 
for next release, see

I see that GnomeMeeting is creating many conflicts inside the GNOME community. 
I agree that 90% of the people do not know what VoIP is, or what it can be
useful to. 

I propose to withdraw GnomeMeeting from the core of GNOME 2.6 and to make it an 
independant application again, or to put it in the Office/Collaborative tools.
