Most of the OPAL bugs are inside the Ekiga bug tracker. I have moved
those I don't plan to fix to the openh323 bug tracker.

However, I think the paragraph in the SIP RFC is clear, when you send an
offer, you must be ready to receive media for all codecs in that offer
before the offer has been acknowledged. I understand it sounds weird,
but that is one of the limitations of OPAL.

Another limitation is that the codec to use is determined from the 200
OK answer in a way that is not necessarily correct.

For example, if you send an INVITE with iLBC, PCMU and PCMA as available
codecs, and the answer comes with PCMU, PCMA and iLBC (in that order)
back, how do you determine if you have to send iLBC or PCMU? OPAL will
send PCMU because it is the preferred codec in the answer.

However, the codec to use should be determined by the RTP payload. So
OPAL should be able to send and receive PCMU/PCMA/iLBC, and choose the
correct one as soon as it receives RTP from the remote peer.

However, that is a non trivial change to OPAL.

What do you think?
