Description:There is a file missing (digits/minus) that asterisk needs to be able to say negative numbers.  Not sure who's idea it was to omit this file and doom us to the world of the positive (must have been an optimist), but hopefully we can get this fixed.  At least we still have 0... Sorry to foil your evil optimist plan buddy :P

Well... it's not to hard to work around, but it's not a minor irritation either (at least not for the customer...).  I see this as pretty serious even though it may be small and easily fixed.  I am suprised no one has brought this up before, but ill keep the guidelines in mind next time.

Is it only for SayNumber or does it have other cases?

I just did:
debian:~# cp /usr/src/asterisk-sounds/sounds/minus.gsm /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/digits/

and after it, everything works fine for me.

That file should be include in asterisk/digits/ directory.

mnicholson: little suggestion; until minus.gsm will be in asterisk/digits/ just do what i did and your clients will stop complaining.

drumkilla thinks the minus.gsm should be sounds/ instead of sounds/digits/
My patch used the /var/lib/asterisk/sounds/minus.gsm

Added missing file to CVS, left it as "minus" under digits (i.e. did not change code, just added file).
