Yes I managed to pick this up shortly after installing asterisk. Another 
volume for the to-do list...

Your enthusiasm is certainly appreciated but remember that gathering 
links and texts is only half the story - structure and navigation will 
be key.

I actually think the maintainer(s) of voip-info.org should be involved 
here too. People searching Google et al will click onto that site and 
from there will at this point in time often only see references to the 
asterisk way. Naturally that site will contain information about the 
market leader but some abstraction of technology versus implementation 
would be nice...
