ipkg, or the Itsy Package Management System, is a lightweight package management system designed for embedded devices that resembles Debian's dpkg. It was used in the Unslung operating system for the Linksys NSLU2 (Optware), in OpenWrt, Openmoko, webOS, Gumstix, the iPAQ, QNAP NASes and elsewhere, it still is being used for Synology NASes.
The development for this project has been discontinued. Many projects which formerly used ipkg have adopted the ipkg fork opkg for a replacement.
