GNU telephony server

Bayonne is the telephony server of the GNU project. Based on the ACS project, it offers a multi-line interactive voice response telephony server which may be scripted and telephony plug-ins for runtime driver configuration directly extended thru modular plugins. Bayonne also features "TGI" for making Perl applications "telephony aware". Support has been extended to include XML parsing and support has been started on VoIP integration to support next generation telephone networks. The project is not fully completed but is moving steadily towards producing a finished project that may be used to build telephony based system administration, home automation, automated attendant, v-commerce, and voice messaging systems.
