Ok, let's clear up some misunderstandings here:
1. This is an open-source project, people contribute where they feel they get the best output for their efforts. This holds for existing contributors, as well as for any person who would like to start contributing. The freedom to just act is one of the great things about open-source...
2. People's time is thus volunteered, not controlled by someone. However, some people, like me, are able to connect shared interests and facilitate efforts not possible by a single individual, and in general, it's quite easy to get people to respond if you have concrete questions.
3. Coordinated efforts, like a release, documentation, and SIP Express Bundle require somebody to create a timeline, coordinate the various efforts, and in effect be a project manager (though more a project coordinator...)
4. Based on signals from various sources, I tried to rally people behind the SIP Express Bundle. To bootstrap that effort, I documented everything (and thus functioned as a project coordinator) at http://www.iptel.org/bundle/project
5. I felt the response on the bundle was quite good, but unfortunately, nobody stepped up as a coordinator. If I had taken that responsibility, my time would effectively be consumed and other activities would suffer.

So, how do we get the Bundle going?  First of all, somebody has to take ownership of http://www.iptel.org/bundle/project, break down tasks, recruit volunteers, and define requirements and questions/issues to resolve. We can create a new project on http://tracker.iptel.org/ to keep track of things.

In that process, there will be questions and problems of technical and other nature.  As the initiator of the bundle project (call it a sponsor if you like), I have committed to act as a "switch", and I will thus help out by answering, connecting, and pushing through decisions in the iptel.org community where I can.

If people have interests in a SIP Express Bundle and are willing to commit time to get it running, we can do this.  If not, and everybody is just waiting for some established developer or contributor to answer their needs, I'm afraid that does not seem likely. Their priorities are probably elsewhere. Unfortunately, similar to commercial organizations, we can only take on more work if we get more resources ;-)
i can be part of this team to develop ISO image install
and test.
let me know if i can helpfull for this bundle project
