What do each of the sip2 message numbers (01, 09, 10, 11, 15, etc.) represent?

Resolution:
Supported message-types in version 20:

01 = Block Patron
09 = Checkin
11 = Checkout
15 = Hold
17 = Item Information
23 = Patron Status Request
29 = Renew
35 = End patron session
37 = Fee Paid
63 = Patron Information
65 = Renew all
93 = Login
99 = SC Status

For more detail on each message, see Section 5 of the "./Technical documentation/How To/Circulation/How to Set Up a SIP2 Server for Self-Check Systems - 20.0" in the Documentation Center, and similar info at http://docs.evergreen-ils.org/1.6/draft/html/SIP_Communication.html .

Also (for EL staff): There is a separate program for each incoming message type in the ./alephm/source/sip2_server directory, e. g.: sip2_server_message_01, sip2_server_message_09, etc.
