Description of problem:
Fedora lacks an easy to use, peer-to-peer (no server involved) voice chat
application, that's easily available from the repositories.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Installing Ekiga, messing around with server settings, sound settings etc. is
too much work, and not a peer-to-peer solution, for people who just want to do
a simple person-to-person conversation.
Pain for people who don't wish to use something like Skype for licensing, and
A simple voice chat application for just doing a basic conversation between

Description of IHU:
"IHU is a Voice over IP (VoIP) application for Linux (using Qt), that creates
an audio stream between two computers easily and with the minimal traffic on
The main features are:
Peer-to-Peer: the communication takes place directly between the computers
(UDP and TCP both supported), without need of session protocols (such as SIP
or H323) or other servers in the middle.
Good audio performance: IHU was born to give the best audio performance, low
latency above all. For this purpose IHU is compatible with ALSA, now the
default Linux sound architecture, but also with JACK, a low latency sound
server. For the audio compression, IHU uses Speex, a codec optimized for
speech (and completely free and open source).
Crypted stream: you have also the possibility to Encrypt/Decrypt the stream
using a fast hybrid cryptographic system (RSA + Blowfish)
Command-line support: the GUI is not strictly necessary, you can run also a
textual IHU from command-line (for example if you need to run the program on
Free and Open Source: IHU is totally free and distributed under the terms of
GNU General Public License."

or call somebody by just specifying their IP.)
I guess you got procedure to get your package in Fedora wrong. Adding
a bugzilla on an unrelated package won't help at all
