h323plus is in unstable?

Just to fill in, from the IRC channel:

<manty> hi!
<manty> I was having a look at current openh323 and found that we don't
        have the latest versions
<manty> Is this because of a lack of time?
<manty> or maybe the 1.20 versions are still somewhat unstable?
<manty> what is the status of openh323 we have on Debian?
<manty> I see we have at least two versions
<manty> and none of these is the one available at is this yet another fork?

<kilian> h323plus is the successor of openh323
<kilian> and thus the only actively "developed" fork
<kilian> it's what our openh323 package needs to evolve into
<kilian> the codebase is plain the last openh323 unstable imported and fixed

<manty> kilian: so... is anybody working on it?
<manty> kilian: or should I start working on it?

<kilian> manty: if you feel like picking back up pwlib/ptlib and
         openh323/h323plus that'd be great
<kilian> manty: there is some stuff to discuss so please read yourself
         into what the last update was that i made and we go from there
