The PyPi package has now been renamed:

Seems to be some synchronicity, since this happened not due to the support ticket I submitted but as part of a larger PyPi database cleanup.

that library, because it really works well, even though sometimes  a bit
complex ;-).

one who asked about the `Python Xlib` pypi package  name  problem, which
shall be resolved through the `distutils-sig` mailing-list:

    All I wanted is to have a clean dependancy in the for pypi,
and also for packaging system.

    I also ran into another  problem.  I  wanted  to  test  xinput stuff
(because I'd like to disable scroll wheels when  more  than  two touches
are detected). There is no xinput in the official SVN repository:

    But while googling, I found out on  about  the following
repository, which has xinput stuff!

    So, here am I asking if it wouldn't be a good idea to switch  to git
or mercurial repositories that help track forks and branches ? It  would
help for these kind of situations. It would also help so people can make
forks/branches on github or bitbucket...
