The following may sound pointlessly controversial, but I don't intend it that way; I think it may help the FSO developers to review and understand more precisely their objectives. Why is FSO still needed at all, given that oFono exists and appears to have the development mindshare and advantages noted above? Would your objectives be achieved more quickly or easily by switching to oFono and contributing any needed additions to that?
