No, we would support the project and help users with issues; we simply would like to share our work back to the FS community as continue development because some of our new core code could be useful in the FS mainline. The best way to think of our branch is it's kind of like trixbox - our goal is to provide an alternative to Microsoft Lync for enterprises. We will be offering for sale a commercial client, features and support services for our distribution while maintaining public and free open source core, basically we are trying to give back to the FS project.

So you are forking the project and then asking the rest of us to help you with that fork?

I wanted to reach out and get some feedback from everyone because my company started a project using FS as base several weeks ago, our goal was to optimize and integrate FS more directly into Windows environments. Here is my question, we would like to share our changes and where should we host our project? Because we understand our build breaks compatibility with the UNIX environments and fails to meet the objectives cross platform compatibility, however it could contribute greatly and be beneficial to other windows users.

Here are some of the changes we have made:

  *   We converted FS core to C++ and having it compiling to .NET 4.0 CLI
  *   FS now runs inside its own namespace
  *   We replace FS_CLI with a PowerShell shell app
  *   Supports SQL Server support via the Native SQL Server Client API
  *   Support for windows clustering (up to 32 node active/active cluster)
  *   Ties more directly into the Win32 API and has less reliance on open source Libs
  *   Replaces OpenSSL sockets with Windows encrypted sockets
  *   Added windows performance monitoring
  *   No longer need to use mod_managed for managed modules
  *   Memory management relies on .Net garbage collection
  *   Added support for Microsoft Speech
  *   VoiceXML 3.0 and SCXML support
  *   No longer supports JS, LUA, PHP development - Modules can be only developed in .NET, C or C++( we feel support for other languages can be added back in but falls outside the scope of our objectives at this time, support for SCXML should make limit the need for other scripting languages)
  *   Fixed RTP clock timing issues in virtualized environments
  *   New configuration file format using .Net App Configuration files (kind of looks like an IIS config file)
