Thank you for the info. I'm a newbie, I'm discovering things on the go 
;-) I just realized yesterday that I had the source for chan_dstar, but 
not for dextra_cli. Of course, I fully agree with you about Open-source 
solutions and open protocols ! Our goal here is to build a VoIP network 
(and an underlying TCP/IP Hamnet network) with Open-source software. Our 
plans are to inter-connect any available protocol. Analog repeaters are 
ready. Now, we are working on DStar, because we have some users 
interested. And DMR will come later.

I was not aware of that possibility. I'll have a look.
