the herd of voip packages is constantly growing and according to
"herdstat -p voip" we already have 60 packages in the voip herd. Those are
currently in the categories net-misc, net-im, net-libs, dev-libs and 
media-libs. Most of them would fit perfectly into a new net-voip category.
Those are enough packages to allow the creation of a new category.

More important than the current packages I think it is to put new packages
into the more precise net-voip instead of net-misc/net-im. For example some
packages in my overlay [1] maintained by the fellow gentoo users peper and
fuoco. Also there is a lot of stuff waiting in stkn's private voip overlay

The 47 voip packages in net-misc and net-im should be moved over to the new
category definitely, you can get the list with:
herdstat -p voip | grep -e net-im -e net-misc
>From the others I think dev-libs/ilbc-rfc3951 should be moved, too.
Any objections, problems with the plan, comments? [1] -- gentoo-dev@g.o mailing list
