The YTalk program is essentially a chat program for multiple users.
YTalk works just like the UNIX talk program and even communicates with
the same talk daemon(s), but YTalk allows for multiple connections
(unlike UNIX talk).  YTalk also supports redirection of program output
to other users as well as an easy-to-use menu of commands.

I was sad to see ytalk go in FC4 so hopefully we'll be able to get it into Extras.  My main concern with this is the License.  For some reason it changed from BSD to GPL.  This just sounds odd to me (From the bottom of the INSTALL file):
Most of these installation instructions are taken word-for-word from the
`INSTALL' file that comes with GNU Wget.  This means that, unlike the
rest of the YTalk package (which is freely copyable as long as the
copyright notices are kept in the sources), this file is (probably)
covered by the GNU General Public License version 2.

I'm no license guru so I'm not sure if any GPL/BSD violations are going on:
