Ah, okay. I didn't know that Talkyoo provides us service free of
charge. That's very nice of them. I'll make a note about that on the
Talkyoo wiki page.

The biggest drawback with Talkyoo I see right now is the fact that
there's no way to connect to a conference call from your computer
using Free Software. We develop LibreOffice as a part of our stated
goal of "spreading the philosophical and cultural ideals of FLOSS,"
but the only software I can use to join a conference call is Skype.

I don't know what kind of connectivity software Talkyoo is using for
their infrastructure, but perhaps we can talk with them about making
it possible to connect using some other piece of (Free/Libre)
software? Is there someone on their team that I can talk to?

I'd definitely put in a strong plug for the no-extra-software-required
of WebRTC, but any FLOSS-friendly protocol would be appreciated.
