We just got a debian-rtc mailing list now:

and some really good news for FOSDEM.  The desktops dev-room accepted
the Telepathy talk proposal but there is a complication: I've also been
given another very big responsibility at FOSDEM, I can still do a talk
on the telepathy-resiprocate project but if anybody else from the
Telepathy community would like to help me run the session in the
desktops dev-room it would be really helpful and would allow us to cover
more aspects of Telepathy.

Please just let me know when you see it working out, it would be really
good to be able to offer this to people to try after the FOSDEM session.

Understood - Jitsi did some work on that (Jitsi Meet WebRTC) but then
they were acquired by Atlassian this year.  The Jitsi Meet solution is
open source though and you can try it at https://meet.jit.si
