[Amportal-devel] So.. Where are we heading?

2.1’s out, and working… And no major show stoppers!

So. Where are we heading? The only two things I’ve been thinking about
are:

2.2: Make Modules understand Requirements (eg, ivr 2.9 requires system
recordings 3.8.1)

…3.0?: ‘Gosub’ style mappings…? Something better than we’re doing
now, but nothing solid. I’d like an IVR where you can go [1]
[Dosomething] [then if returncode] [equals] [something]
[dosomethingelse]

That actual format will suck. But something better than now 8) Ooh. And
Ajax-y. Ajax is funky. I’m totally unclued about it, but it looks
really cool.

So. Guidance. Suggestions. Hints?

Didn’t even know 2.1 was out to be honest.

The only point I would like to make here is that where ever we are
heading, can it be please be planned a little? and the details put on the
wiki or something. The only reason I say this is that I for one, although
love coding on this project, sometime have work commitments that I cannot
always say how long will take and it’s useful for me to just be able to
look at some kind of list and pick up something that needs doing. At the
moment it seems that unless you spend every single day on IRC you end up
‘out of the loop’ and don’t know what’s currently going on.

Re the AJAX, yes it’s cool and defo has some use in virtually every
project these days. I noticed a point being made a few week out thou
about changing the validation/form entry so that certain defaults were
assumed if no JavaScript was available. This is fine but without assuming
the user is using JavaScript you ain’t gonna be using Ajax !

would be good to comb through the feature requests and see what general themes there may be, and at the same time, think about solidfying some of the ‘infrastructure’ as a basis moving forward. The ‘dependency requiremets’ are a good example. I would also vote for getting some discussion on a couple of points I posted: abstracting timeconditions and moving more things to astdb.

a theme that I would like to see be part of the 2.2 timeframe would be the increased functionality of a user portal. For example, follow-me settings settable by a user in that portal (as well as other things like personal dial options, etc.). ARI is clearly a good candidate. If someone wanted to sign up for that - I’d be glad to looking on improving the follow-me to take advantage of it - maybe going as far as my long desired follow-me ‘schedule’ that a user could set. Maybe even another step - announcing who is calling giving a choice of acknowledging or rejecting the call (which helps with no accidental drops into cell phone voicemails, etc.).

Another common thing I’ve seen asked that might be a nice consideration is some infrastructure to automatically configure multiple ‘internal’ contexts giving the ability to choose what is included in each context and which routes would be enabled (and when based on time conditions). This is useful in giving different calling priorities to different classes of phones/users (e.g. a reception phone, visitor phone,etc.) A lot of this may be module based but still depend on changes to core. One might envision a module that configures multiple internal contexts. Its purpose would be to simply choose, for each of these, what is and is not included (as far as the typical inclusions that are hardcoded into from-internal or otherwise automatically added without asking in _additional). One could envision an interface similar to how trunks are added in outbound routes on this page, although in this case you would be including or removing routes from the context, and configuring the order that they are included. Anyhow - I’m just brainstorming/rambling here - as there are other ways and ideas on how this may be implemented but just wanted to get some thought processes going.

Might be well worthwhile to get some of us on a phone conference and maybe hash some of this out?
