[coreboot] [RFC] Finding a conference call solution for the CCC

Dear coreboot folks,

At the last coreboot community meeting (CCC) [1][2], some participants
couldn’t here what other participants were saying with the current
conference call solution Discord [3].

As this greatly reduces the productivity, the conclusion was to find a
different solution, as this problem has been present since the
beginning and Discord doesn’t seem to be able to fix this.

So either somebody gets in contact with Discord, and they promise to
work on a solution for the next meeting, or we need to find a different

The requirements are.

1. Working conference call (audio) functionality
2. No registration necessary
3. Clients for all operating systems (packages at best in distribution
archive), or at least a Web client that runs with Mozilla Firefox (ESR
and last version), and Google Chromium (last version).

Chris(?) offered to set up a Mumble [4] server. Clients for all
operating systems are supposed to be available.

Also Tox was mentioned [5], which doesn’t feature a Web client, as far
as I can see.

So if you know of a solution, please tell us, so that technical
problems won’t spoil the fun of the CCCs.
