Personally I believe the best way to move forward with a Voice/Video
Conference Activity is to look at empathy and associated projects. I
believe there was plans to produce a libempathy for reuse although I
don't know the status of that. By using empathy/cheese and other
components it would integrate with our current comms stack and allow
sharing of things like account data and contacts as well as being
transferable between gnome and sugar.
