That’s your opinion – and your entitled to it sir.
However, this still doesn’t answer my question.
I’m just suggesting that maybe you are ‘swimming upstream’ trying to use
MySQL within the dialplan.
Much the same as if you were proposing an office system using a ‘tin cans
and string’ mesh with carrier pigeons for out of band call signaling and
having a problem with poop buildup on the endpoints — I might propose
using Asterisk 🙂
Thanks Tilghman – this is exactly what I wanted to hear. As for the
‘inclusion’ bit – true, but it’s still infused in to the addons package
at the Digium end (isn’t it?).
Anyway, I’ll go create a mysql.conf file now 🙂
While Digium hosts the repository and the project head (Russell) is a
Digium employee, what winds up in the repository is largely up to the
Asterisk community, including many non-Digium developers with commit
access. While Digium does contribute a great deal to the releases,
suggesting that Digium is responsible for everything that ends up in a
release is reductionist and diminutive of the many contributions made by
