Inside the Asterisk
Normally you will find me on this blog talking about technical aspects of Asterisk but today I’d like to talk about the Asterisk website and this blogs site.

Greetings Everyone! Time flies when you are having fun and improving Asterisk; this past year has been no different. October and Astricon  are fast approaching; and, thus, the first release candidate of Asterisk is here .

Overview For those of you who have been around for a while now and contribute to the code base, you probably know about CHANGES and UPGRADE.txt and how annoying it can be when multiple people have made modifications to these files at the same time. For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking
