Well, but I think it doesn't quite mean you try to have a group
conversation over a 1:1 channel ;-).  My definition of 'ready' just
means that there is at least code for it ;-).

That's not dog-fooding, as we obviously don't download the GNUnet TGZ
very much. Just posting GNUnet code or documents on GNUnet doesn't make
*us* use it, it just forces others that want to learn about the system
to use it first.

And for source code *development*, we need version control, and that is
again simply not existing in AFS.

Anyway, I do think using gnunet-conversation instead of the phone as
soon as possible (for 1:1 conversations among developers) would be good.
