Could an ebuild be added for the Zoom Meeting client which allows you to share your desktop and use phone or computer audio for sound and a webcam to view the individuals you're meeting with?
The tarball can be downloaded here: https://zoom.us/download
Technically yes, but I think it would fit better in one of the overlays first until there are some users who need it.
I could not find the license. May we mirror the files?
You can link to an overlay or attach your ebuilds here.
I really would love to have this on tree. Zugaina database  said there are a couple of overlays in layman already providing an ebuild for this software

Proposed ebuild attached.
Main issue is this message printed by emerge (but I suppose we can't do anything with this):
scanelf: rpath_security_checks(): Security problem NULL DT_RPATH in /var/tmp/portage/net-im/zoom-bin-2.7.162522.0121/image/opt/zoom/platforminputcontexts/libfcitxplatforminputcontextplugin.so

This is the same as the previous ebuild, with the following changes:
1. Update to the latest version.
2. Add a couple of dependencies.
3. Version the downloaded tarball.
Today 2.8.183302.0415 stop working (hang on "Connecting to Google" on start). Renaming 2.8.183302.0415 ebuild to 3.0.309708.1027 and updating package fixed the issue.
@mva: Would you be interested in adding https://github.com/msva/mva-overlay/tree/master/net-im/zoom-bin to the main tree and maintaining it?
Otherwise, dilfridge and myself would take it (in which case please post your Signed-off-by in a comment here).
As discussed in #gentoo-dev, the package name shouldn't have a -bin suffix (which is reserved for binary packages that are pre-built from a source package).

It seems it is not necessary (since, I'm a co-maintainer, as stated in metadata), but for completeness, my s-ob line is:
