inotifyx is a Python extension providing access to the Linux
inotify file system event notification API. It is primarily
written in C but has some Python window dressing
inotifyx exists as an alternative to the much known pyinotify bindings
Reasons you might choose inotifyx over pyinotify
* inotifyx is a C extension and does not use ctypes, making it
faster and less prone to subtle breakage due to changes in the inotify API
* inotifyx is a much thinner wrapper around inotify. pyinotify is more
complicated. It does provide features that inotifyx does not, but many of
them are not needed by most applications
* The API provided by pyinotify seems to change in incompatible ways on a
fairly regular basis and with little justification. inotifyx has a simple
API that will change rarely, if ever.

* debian/control
- Switch Version Control from git to subversion to better align with
the Python packaging team
* Update Standards-Version to 3.8.2 (No changes required)
