Update repo's are old and some don't work. Phone setup is extremely difficult. There's no documentation on how to choose a template for a device not in the list. For instance I'm trying to setup a Grandstream GPX-2000, a business class SIP phone. No idea if I can use a current template or if I have to create my own. No idea how to create a templates.
Phones wizard is missing.
There's no solid documentation on how to setup asterisk in LMCE using a TDM card, only sip/iax trunks.
I like the idea of LMCE but documentation is poor.
Hardware suggestions are confusing, they don't seem to be very current.
I'd be willing to help with documentation, I'm a technical writer, but I need to see it work.
Maybe 1004 is not what I need to start with, even though you suggest that as a starting point.
