The Open-Source for Informix Project

Welcome to the open-source for Informix project! The goal of this project is to make popular open-source applications and tools available to the Informix community. As a first step, the required modifications will be available here while we are working with the appropriate open-source communities to get them integrated with their product.

What follows is a list of active or completed projects, followed by a list of open-source products we'd like to see run on Informix. If you know of products that already support Informix, want to add to our wish list, volunteer to work on a product, or simply send us your comments, feel free to contact the project coordinator at opensource@iiug.org.

The patches available on this site are posted in good faith. You take responsibility for any problems that these patches may cause.
