[App_rpt-users] irlp channel driver Q?

Hi Tony,

<can of worms>

AFAIK, support for IRLP was removed from app_rpt, at the insistence of Dave 
Cameron. Personally, I think that he is sitting on a stockpile of
obsolete parallel port cards, and is afraid that he'll get stuck with them. 
Many IRLP node owners believe that their node will not operate without
the parallel port card, and the guy selling them likes that. As you know, 
his board doesn't even handle audio (other than for the DTMF decoder).

 There is also the matter of his ROIP commercial system, which uses the same 
obsolete parallel port card.

At one time IRLP would issue a node number / PGP key for a "donation", sans 
IRLP board.

As for your last question, I'm not sure. Since app_rpt is open source, I'm 
guessing it could be done if one knew how to integrate chan_irlp.

I decided to vote with my feet, and turned in my IRLP node number after 
Cameron's antics. Let him take his ball and go home.... Works for me!
