If you get the main ipython branch using Bazaar:
bzr branch lp:ipython
The documentation is in the docs/source directory. The documentation
is in simple text files as restructured text (a simple markup
language). If you have Sphinx installed, you can build the html docs
$ cd docs
$ make html
Then open the main page in build/html/index.html
Most of the information is there, but some of the docs need to be
updated. Please let us know if you need help though.
