[sip-comm-dev] Ideas of new functions to be added to SIP Communicator


#1

Hi SIP Communicator again!

First of all, this is not about GSoC at all.

Our department (Department of Computer Science and Engineeering, University
of Moratuwa <http://www.cse.mrt.ac.lk/>) is going to introduce the Open
Source world to it's Level 3 students. The process goes like this.

There are 100 students who will be doing their programming project this
year. Up to now students did projects designed and managed and implemented
by their own. This year things going to be changed. Department expects to
select small sub projects from existing open source projects and assign
students to those. It will be an individual project.

I talked to the department officials and informed them about the SIP
Communicator. We are very happy if we could get some projects from the SIP
Communicator as well.

The complexity of a project could be treated as of half the complexity of a
GSoC project.
The duration will be a semester (15 weeks)
No need to create separate branches in repository for these projects.
Students will create patches and will send them to you.
No need to assign any mentors from SIP Communicator side. But students may
ask for guidance in the dev list.
Evaluation of the success of these projects will be done by the department.
Comments from the SIP Communicator about the patches created by students
will be very helpful in the process.
Project which involve with some GUI designing will get extra attention.

Can the community come up with some suitable project ideas? Hoping to have
some positive response from the community about this. This may help the SIP
Communicator to attract new contributors to it and expand its functions.

Cheers
Dilshan

Hello

Id like to know if DTMF is fully working on SC

Im using build 1941, and so far it seems not.

Im placing calls to the PSTN via na Asterisk SIP Server, and DTMF produces no effect on the called party.

Can you guys tell me if this is solved on a more recent build ?

Thanks

Carlos

Hey Carlos,

They are supposed work and send SIP INFO messages. Make sure that your
server understands these. You can also have a look with wireshark and
check whether they are being sent.

RTP DTMF would come after we are done refactoring the media service
which would take us until the end of the month I guess (or a week or two
later).

Cheers,
Emil

Hey Dilshan,

Glad to hear from you again and thank you for bringing this to our
attention. We would of course be happy to help any students that contact
us for advice on this mailing list. Here are a few ideas that may be of
interest:

- support for different packs of smileys
    Difficulty: 6/10

- manage block, ignore lists
    Difficulty: 7/10

- have "online since", "away since", "last seen online", etc appear in
our contact tooltips.
    Difficulty: 5/10

- contact list filtering (typing a string in the contact list and then
making it only show the contacts that contain the string).
    Difficulty: 9/10

- support for enabling and disabling specific accounts (like pidgin and
adium do).
    Difficulty: 5/10

- call recording and playback
    Difficulty: 10/10

The difficulty levels are of course approximative at best so you should
take them with a grain of salt. A level of 1 is supposed to be a task
that you could achieve by merely copy-pasting material from our
tutorials. A level of 10 represents a task that would require a lot of
dedication and possibly more than the knowledge one could acquire by
only following level 3 university classes (in other words this is
real-geek material :slight_smile: ). Such tasks could easily result in acquiring
developer role in the project if handled properly.

Hope this works for you,
Emil

Thank you so much for your great ideas. I'll give those to our supervisors
and students and then will be back with the results soon.
