Just noticed the wiki post : https://wiki.freepbx.org/display/FPG/Policy+on+Phone+Apps+with+Non+Sangoma+Phones
I'm greatly concerned about this change... I have a significant investment in supporting and providing non-Sangoma phones and using Phone Apps with my clients. Does this mean if I purchase the Phone Apps commercial module after this weekend for other FreePBX installations that it wouldn't work for non-Sangoma phones?
If for example, Digium, Yealink or Mitel/Aastra comes out with newer phones, they will not work with Phone Apps?
The models of "supported devices" for Phone Apps is also not up-to-date or comprehensive... which concerns me that if say a Mitel 6873i phone that works on Phone Apps today, would it not be supported after this weekend?
I feel like this a forced move. The thing I've liked about FreePBX is the openness and flexibly to chose different options of hardware endpoints regardless of brand and this is severely limiting that.
I would definitely pay more for a Phone Apps module to devote resources to keeping it up to date and compatible with other non-Sangoma endpoints than just blanket limiting myself to only one brand.
