Board conference room should hav no anonymous access.  all other access must 
be through a pin.  as for the rest anonymous should be read only.

numbers are a necessary evil.  along with this it would be good to be able to 
log into a web page get list of users/numbers and current registered status.  
this would be nice to look up in ekiga and other softphones directly also

absolute must.  for the same reason we don't store email

If anyone wants to volunteer a DID so they can dial in  then please feel free 
to do so.

I would like to provide sample asterisk configs also.  not sure if anyone 
other than me will use an existing asterisk setup to tie into fedora.

setting up in puppet should be fairly trivial once we work out what we want 
and where.
