General question: How to start with the IVI Layer Managemet

I'm quite new in using wayland. 
We got a BSP wich is using Wayland 10.0 and Weston 10.0 and it seems to me 
that for our purpose, the IVI Extension is what we need.

The idea is to have an application which is constantly checking which 
surfaces are registered and deregistered to wayland, and move the to 
special predfined places on the screen.

However, I'm confused now where to start.

I checked
but the following links are not working anymore:

Wayland IVI Extension Project page

Quick Start of Wayland IVI Extension 

Also I did not found the link where to download the IVI Extension code.

Reading this page:

I'm also a little bit confused: Is IVI-Shell allready included in Weston 
10.0 and what is the difference between IVI-Shell and IVI-Extension?

Hope you can help me
