Q.SIG is just a variant of Q.931 and thus might be covered in that already.
The question is what does Q.SIG run on top of?
Usualy Q.SIG is on top of Q.921 on top of ISDN BRI or ISDN PRI physical interfaces. Q.SIG over some IP carrier might simply be some really "vendor specific" way of doing it. Maybe this is more a problem to tell ethereal that a specific TCP port or whatever is used is in fact Q.SIG than the protocol dissector itself.

This would be very useful to A LOT of folks around here as well. Any plans
to support Q.SIG?

Congratulation! You're the first one I know that actually follow the
"official" process :-)
This is just to prevent invalid and/or duplicate entries.

I don't know anything about Q.SIG, you may just add it to the WishList.
As an FYI, my company is about to roll out a fairly large IP telephony
project that will involve a lot of Q.SIG interaction. It would be
extremely helpful to be able to span that traffic over to Ethereal for
You may start a new Wiki page about this protocol and include a trace file

However, there are no guarantees that it actually will be implemented at
all, until you do the job yourself or find someone to do it.
