Bug#833684: ITP: consolation -- consolation linux console pointer support

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Bill Allombert <ballombe@debian.org>

* Package name    : consolation
  Version         : 0.0.1
  Upstream Author : Bill Allombert <ballombe@debian.org>
* URL             : https://alioth.debian.org/projects/consolation/

  Description     : consolation linux console pointer support

 This package provides pointer support to the linux console for
 copy-paste and scrolling.
 It is based on the libinput library and supports all pointer devices and
 settings provided by this library.

The motivation beind this is that modern touchpads are poorly supported
by GPM, and GPM itself is considered unmaintainable.

Consolation use of libinput allow for touchpads support on par with the
X and Wayland drivers.

(Help with improving the description is welcome)

Imagine a large red swirl here.
