Ubuntu Precise

Version Control Repository

The trunk is stable and recommended for anyone that wishes to use the library. The project policy is to add only tested code to the main repository. Known issues are listed in the tickets interface.

The source code is managed using darcs version control tool. The darcs repository can be fetched with:


darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/python-sipsimple


Several dependencies provided by AG Projects can be accessed in the same way:

darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/python-xcaplib
darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/python-msrplib
darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/python-application
darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/python-backports
darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/python-gnutls
darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/python-cjson
darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/python-greenlet
darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/python-eventlib

Command Line Tools

darcs get http://devel.ag-projects.com/repositories/sipclients

To obtain the incremental changes after the initial get, go to the python-sipsimple and sipclients directory and run:

darcs pull -a


For how to build the dependencies see the documentation that comes with each package. Do no ask us how to build the required dependencies because it is as difficult as having people landed on the Moon, which is not even certain it actually happened.
