Ultimately, the aim is make imip-agent available through Free Software operating system distributions such as Debian, providing packages that are trivially installed and that work with the rest of the system straight away upon installation.

Until this is realised, the software will need to be downloaded manually. See the getting started guide once you have obtained the software.

Remember that certain prerequisites are needed for the software to work.

The imip-agent distribution is made available according to the terms of the GNU GPL (version 3 or later). See the docs/COPYING.txt and docs/gpl-3.0.txt files in the source code distribution for details.


The source code repository is located at the following location:

The repository can be cloned using Mercurial as follows:

hg clone

If you are familiar with version control systems and Mercurial in particular, it can be convenient to use this approach to obtain and update the software, although you should be aware that updates made available in the repository may, if deployed, cause the software to not function correctly on occasion, even if attempts are made to avoid such situations. Therefore, you should choose to update with care and be prepared to switch to a "known working" revision if necessary.
