Telepathy Connection Manager
Telepathy is the communication framework of the Free Desktop project, commonly used as part of GNOME and KDE desktops on GNU/Linux distributions. Telepathy works with back-ends (connection managers) and front-ends such as the GNOME Empathy application for voice, webcam and IM chat.
There is currently a SIP connection manager for Telepathy called telepathy-rakia based on Sofia SIP. Sofia SIP is no longer actively maintained (last release 2011) and has fewer capabilities than reSIProcate.
Creating a reSIProcate-based connection manager for Telepathy is now viable because reSIProcate packages are available on the major GNU/Linux distributions.
The reSIProcate ReCon API is a high-level API that conveniently supports the API calls for a Telepathy Connection Manager.
It is necessary to
- develop and test glue-code for mapping the Telepathy API calls for voice/video calling to ReCon API calls
- develop and test glue-code for mapping the Telapathy API calls for IM (presence, messaging) to [[DUM_Overview][Dialog Usage Manager API]] calls.
- create a package of this code, potentially called telepathy-resiprocate, for the Linux distributions
