Answering some common queries:
Users without a Fedora account can make calls to a Fedora user too, they
can go to https://freephonebox.net
and type in the address, e.g.
You can also give people a URL to call you, e.g.
or embed the URLs in your web site, email signature, etc
Please note I make no claim to be a front-end developer. JSCommunicator
is meant to be a bridge between the front-end/GUI and the back end. If
anybody wants to make the front-end more pretty for fedrtc then feel
free to fork it and we'll look at how to work together.
