Description:This small patch adds a new optional variable to features.conf called 'courtesytone' which is used in the parking code to play a particular sound file to the calling party the moment before they are bridged to the parked party. If 'courtesytone' is undefined behaviour will be as before this patch; namely, no courtesy tone.


When a call has been parked the parked party hears on-hold music while they are parked. When another party (the calling party) dials into the assigned parking slot the MOH stops and the parked party clearly understands they are connected.

However, if the call setup time for the calling party is not instantaneous (such as over E&M tie lines from another PBX) and both parties have high audio quality systems it is very difficult to determine when the call has actually connected - ie. there is little or no comfort noise to indicate the successful bridging.

In our environment this freqently leads to 'stuttered starts' where the calling party speaks entirely before, during setup of or long after the bridge is up.

Do you have a disclaimer on file?

Faxed in disclamer.changes earlier this evening. Is that sufficient or should I complete the full release also?
