This package provides bindings to the generic input event interface
in Linux. The evdev interface serves the purpose of passing events
generated in the kernel directly to userspace through character
devices that are typically located in /dev/input/.
This package also comes with bindings to uinput, the userspace input
subsystem. Uinput allows userspace programs to create and handle
input devices that can inject events directly into the input
This package installs the library for Python 2.

python-evdev (1.1.2+dfsg-1) unstable; urgency=medium
* New upstream release.
* Enable tests, skipping those requiring root. Closes: #908988.
* Ensure that the module is available when the documentation is built,
so that the API documentation can be included. As a result, the
documentation is now architecture-dependent. Closes: #908990.
* Set “Rules-Requires-Root: no”.
* Standards-Version 4.2.1, no further change required.
