[Linux-ham] Asterisk as a repeater

Yeah, this is the same guy who setup "Limey Linux" which I've played
around with a bit to see if I could get asterisk running on it. It really
needs 256MB of RAM, though, and my test system only has 128.
I've actually wondered about putting together a system similar to
IRLP or Echolink using Asterisk connected repeaters. If you've ever
looked into the details of IRLP, it's quite horrible. It works well, but
it's a maintanence nightmare! (mostly shell scripts and then some
closed source version of SpeakFreely). My thought, if I were going
to redesign it, would be to go with something like SIP or better yet
IAX2 and make it open. Also, combining it with Asterisk would making
doing an Autopatch extremely simple! :-)
