Well, maybe I'm  just not seeing the whole picture here but the
xf86-input-evdev in app/ looks to be the same exact source code as the
xf86-input-evdev in drivers. The one in app/ is version 1.1.3 and the one in
drivers/ is version 1.1.4...

The 1.1.3 version is even missing in drivers/.... :-) Which again, tells me
someone uploaded to the wrong directory. And if the xf86-input-evdev in app/
is REALLY supposed to be a library and not a driver or app, then why does it
have the same EXACT name as the driver and why is it in app/ when it should
be in lib/?

Nothing else in app/ depends on xorg-server, except this supposed new
xf86-input-evdev, that's actually a driver but supposed to be a lib?

I'm sorry, but something isn't adding up here. Maybe I need another cup of
coffee but I think we have a problem here.
