Description:(We might need a new category - Core/extension and device states )

When the dialplan loads, all hints are initialized to a first state. If a device state provider is not loaded at the time, like meetme (or the new device state provider in chan_sip/Pinana), the hints are not initialized to the initial state. This affects all hints that have an initial state, like a registration in chan_sip, which is a state for "presence" subscriptions using SIMPLE in chan_sip.

The patch in /svn/asterisk/team/oej/pinana-initialize-devstate-1.4 fixes this by re-initializing all hints using the new device state provider after registration of a new device state provider.

2,5 years later I believe this is still not fixed.

Created trunk version of the code and put up on reviewboard.
