Today i visited Asterisk community forums and got this:
You have been permanently banned from this board.
Please contact the Board Administrator for more information.
A ban has been issued on your username.
My last post was a answer in thread were someone was asking for g.729 codec for the ARM platform. I proposed to test my patch for the bcg729 codec and was permanently banned with all my posts deleted 🙂
Just in case:
- I am not implementing g.729 functionality and using open-source GPLv2 project bcg729 available in the net.
- You might have to pay royalty fees to the G.729 patent holders for using their algorithm.
- The G.729 codec from Digium is supported for use only on Linux x86 and x86_64 environments.
I already wrote mail to the board administrator, but i think they are just banning everyone with non-blob g.729 implementation. I would recommend them to spend some time for porting their solution to more platforms instead 🙂
