The leader of the open source VOIP/PBX project Asterisk, Kevin Fleming, is leaving the project's parent company, Digium, to work on as yet unspecified projects. Digium has created a new leadership team for the open source project, led by Matt Jordan.

While Fleming has not given any details about what he will do next, the company's blog post says that his new employment will be "within the realms of Open Source". Fleming had been involved in the Asterisk project for more than seven years, and was the project's leader for most of that time. He originally took over the role from Asterisk founder Mark Spencer.

Asterisk is an open source telephone system that has become one of the leading PBX implementations. Originally written for Linux systems, the software now also runs on Mac OS X, Windows, several BSD variants and Solaris. Digium is the commercial entity behind the project which provides support and services for the GPL licensed software.
