modern android and ios clients are a requirement. Speakerphone on android would be nice. Plumble appears abandoned.

video would be interesting, but probably not terribly important.

The draw for me is that I can set up my own server, so in times like these when discord's servers are overloaded, I am not affected.

I also have a side project to try and replace dozens of PTT radios (like GMRS/FRS). The goal is to keep the server onsite, so no internet connection is required, just a wireless network. but as others have said, I'm probably not a good design target, because I have a budget and will be building embedded systems (handsets) to do everything over wifi, possibly lorawan.

Here's a feature request: if a user's mic is maxed out for 5 seconds, (i.e. bad feedback) auto mute?

As far as setting up mumble, breaking the setup down into pieces:
1- how does the user input the configuration information i.e. server name, port, password
2- how does the user input their own information i.e. nickname and password

Wherever possible, I suggest removing customizations, and setup login protocols such that as long as you get the server name port right, you get a understandable error message explaining what you need to do to activate the connection (i.e. get the password right)

Permissions to promote different users to admin or similar. an actual admin control panel; web front end for mumble would be a good gateway to make that happen. i.e. defaults of admin, manager, member. so if you make a server among friends, you can grant everyone the permission to create new channels as they see fit.

actually a web frontend would also allow far easier adoption by users: they won't need anything but a web browser, since browsers allow you to access the mic pretty easily these days.
