Description:Using some of the best practices names for SIP peers provides the quandary of knowing exactly what peer is where, or who it is assigned to.

If you name all your peers as the MAC address of the device, then it's difficult to determine what device is assigned to whom, or at least knowing where the device physically resides.

I've added a description field that can help. When you do 'sip show peers' then a new column called Description outputs 32 chars of a description to the Asterisk console.

Added a new patch that provides support for chan_dahdi.conf, sip.conf, and iax.conf, along with a Description field for manager options IAXpeers, SIPpeers, SIPshowpeer, and DAHDIshowchannels.
