Well, like I said, there is an initial learning curve (as you would expect
with something as powerful as PBX) but as with what most/all people that use
the software say about it: it's worth it. Yes, it has an enum module.

Again, if you just want it to ring a couple of phones when a call comes in
then it shouldn't be hard at all to do. However, if you want to build an IVR
then you will probably have to code it up in one of the supported languages
that I mentioned.

That's a shame. A lot of projects use IRC as a medium for real-time
discussion including FreeSWITCH.

There is a mailing list, as with most projects, as well as IRC support for
those that required something a little more real-time.
