Other thing I just realized is that the current stable freeswitch

Oh, they actually do 'releases', at least they do release tags once in a while: 

v1.5.11 is tagged. 

But they don't upload those to 

I have always found the freeswitch release engineering very confusing. 

If someonw has any good ideas what to do with freeswitch (eg which 
version do we ship with alpine 3.0), please let me know. 


Yea I could understand how that could be confusing. I think a lot of it stems from the fact that master on the git used to be considered stable (tagged versions only existed to please other distros by having a tagged stable). They’ve recently changed that and started going back to 1.2.* = stable, 1.4.* = beta, master = dev. So technically I think the packaged version in main should be 1.2.*.
