Asterisk Advisory Council Formed

Via Bruce Stewart on the O’Reilly ETel blog comes the news that an Asterisk Advisory Council has been formed.  According to the press release, "the Council will assist in the management of the Asterisk open source telephony project. Responsibilities of the council include the selection and supervision of community developers, management of release cycles, and maintenance of Asterisk contributions, among other duties. "

Asterisk is growing up rapidly, and it’s heartening to see the folks at Digium recognize and respond to this growth.

    Hmmm…

    Interesting that Mark Spencer is not apart of this group. Even if this is just an elevation in cacaphony of developers wanting to have their voices heard by the Linus of Asterisk (which I'm not sure it is), it might have been nice for courtesy to include his name with at least an honorary title or something.

    It's also possible, Frank, that he might not have wanted to be part of an Advisory Council. He, after all, is the Linus of Asterisk.
