[dsdp-tm-dev] Please upgrade: Skype now supports conferencing with up to 9 contacts

Dear committers,

thanks to all of you for your patience trying out
alternative conferencing solutions -- and sorry for
not being very successful with the Eclipse Asterisk
server so far. I'll keep you posted about improvements.

In the meantime, I just learned that the newest 
update of Skype (version supports direct 
conferencing with up to 9 contacts. This could be
another option for us to try (though it would not
support calling in from a landline as the Asterisk
solution does).

Anyways, I'd recommend that you upgrade Skype so
you are prepared. Remember that we recommend using 
Skype for instant messaging during the conferences
anyways (you can quit the Skype program after the
conference if you want -- DaveM reported it to take
lots of CPU cycles).

Please let me know about any concerns, or give
notice when you successfully upgraded.
