Bug#620943: ITP: evtest -- utility to monitor input device events

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Stephen Kitt <steve@sk2.org>

* Package name    : evtest
  Version         : 1.27
  Upstream Author : Peter Hutterer <peter.hutterer@redhat.com>
* URL             : http://cgit.freedesktop.org/evtest/
* License         : GPLv2
  Programming Lang: C
  Description     : utility to monitor input device events

 evtest monitors an input device, displaying all the events it generates.
 It can be used to determine mice button bindings, keymaps for exotic
 keyboards... It is commonly used to debug issues with input devices
 in X.Org.

evtest used to be part of joystick (linuxconsole), but is now
maintained separately. I therefore intend to remove evtest from the
joystick package (which I maintain) and introduce a separate source
package for evtest.
