I'm in the pkg-voip group at Debian so I can potentially package this
new version of the library

Ok, my mistake, I did see it in github - it was just a wiki issue

That's what we use in reSIProcate - we have a very basic wrapper for
rlm_digest auth:


We have a GSoC student helping us out this summer and he will probably
have a go at generalising that code to work with rlm_hmac (for
STUN/TURN) as well as existing SIP support.

It may be possible for us to contribute the most general part of our
solution back to the client library project
