I think it would be very convenient to have Asterisk 1.6 for F9,
especially if F8 stays on Asterisk 1.4. The company I work for will
likely stay on Asterisk 1.4 until a Fedora package of Asterisk 1.6 is
available. The advantages of sticking to a prepackaged Asterisk are
likely greater than the advantages of having the very latest Asterisk
features.

The Asterisk community would probably benefit from getting Asterisk
1.6 into wide use early; the lack of wide deployment of early Asterisk
1.4 almost certainly slowed its stabilization.
