Wesley J. Landaker <address@hidden> described the package as follows:
License: gpl
Other License: 
Package: MiMMS isn't an MMS Message Sender
System name: mimms
Type: non-GNU

MiMMS (formerly known as mmsclient) is a simple command-line client to download 
streaming audio and/or video media from the internet using the MMS (this refers 
to mms:// URL's -- not the MMS related to SMS) protocol. Downloaded media 
streams are saved as normal media files that can then be replayed offline at 
your leisure, using any compatible media player of your choice (i.e. mplayer, 
xine, etc).

The original source for mmsclient is: 

In the process of packaging this software for Debian GNU/Linux, I have had no 
luck over the course of several months to contact the original author (who 
leaves no contact information whatsoever on his web page or in the package) so 
I and several other users I've spoken with decided to take over maintenence of 
the software. (Of course, the software is released under the GNU GPL, so this 
is perfectly legitimate. =) To avoid confusion with another project called 
"mmsclient" (on sourceforge) that uses a different MMS protocol (related to SMS 
for mobile phones), I decided to rename this MiMMS (MiMMS isn't an MMS Message 
Sender ;).
