I've been following this area for a fair while now, including sitting in on
the mailing list and trying to understand what they're on about :)
The current status is a lot of one of the lucent chip sets has been reverse
engineered by Pavel Macheck - he seems to be the main driving force
that is motivating the others. At moment his work will establish a connection
to a remote modem, i.e. it'll dialup an ISP under Linux, the long term aim
is to develop a driver that will work with Fabric Bellards developments.
Fabric Bellard is, to quote the linmodem page, 'writing a generic linmodem
driver', i.e. software that takes care of all the DSP (digital signal
processing), various required encoding/decoding and protocols.
