I'm afraid I don't understand the situation well enough. From my
point of view, it doesn't look like a documentation bug - it looks as
if xserver-xorg-input-evdev stops functioning at all under stretch,
which is an obvious release-critical bug. But if that was true I
would have expected other people to have noticed. *Is* there a way of
making evdev continue to work after the dist-upgrade? Or should it be
replaced by a transition package pulling in x-x-i-libinput?
Meanwhile on the same page of debian-user archives I see people are
also running into the minor problem that stretch initramfs expects
/etc/initramfs-tools/conf.d/resume to contain the UUID of a valid swap
device, giving a boot-time delay if, for instance, you've run mkswap
since install time (even if you never use resume). That's *another*
thing that ought to be mentioned in issues.dbk.
