[jitsi-dev] turnserver.org package orphaned, supporting alternatives


#1

(please reply on the dev@jitsi.org list)

I've orphaned the turnserver.org package in Debian:
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=805777

Two other TURN server packages with open source licenses are more
regularly updated and appear to have many more features now:

coTurn:
Web: https://github.com/coturn/coturn/
Package: https://packages.qa.debian.org/c/coturn.html

reTurn:
Web: http://www.resiprocate.org/ReTurn_Overview
Package: https://packages.qa.debian.org/r/resiprocate.html

Would it be more efficient for the Jitsi team to collaborate on the
development of one of these other projects?

Note that my decision to orphan the package was not based on anything
significantly bad about turnserver.org, it is just that every package I
maintain requires a certain amount of time and effort and when there are
two other viable packages already widely available I feel it is better
for me to contribute time to those things that need more urgent
attention, like the ice4j packaging or the telepathy-resiprocate[1] project.

Daniel
