Packagers/Reviewers/People interested

General Issues

* Legal status of iLBC prevents it from inclusion into Fedora, so you should check that your application doesn't use it before submitting it to Fedora/EPEL.

Now iLBC can be included in Fedora: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=728302#c26

A new review request for WebRTC, that include iLBC codec, should be open nearly. A first package and spec file can be found here: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=728302#c41
