Hi Jakub,

if you need it, feel free to review and upload libxkbcommon 0.2.0 to
experimental, Timo updated the packaging in git but I haven't had a
chance to look yet.
(git://anonscm.debian.org/git/pkg-xorg/lib/libxkbcommon debian-unstable)

Cheers,
Julien

It turns out that I won't have time to finish packaging it.
I've attached my work-in-progress debian/ directory.

Thanks.  I have updated the packaging to kmscon-7 locally, and while
it's nowhere near ready it even works to some degree.  Let's see if I
can manage to get it into a releasable state.

Cheers,
       Sven

Hi,

FYI, I just upload libtsm. But this is in New queue yet.

libtsm is used by kmscon.
I think, kmscon of build dependencies is resolved by this.

Best regards,
  Nobuhiro

Indeed it is, thank you for packaging libtsm.  Unfortunately, I haven't
found time and motivation to bring kmscon into a releasable state,
somebody else will have to do that.

I'm attaching a WIP Debian tarball for kmscon 8 in case somebody is
interested.

Cheers,
       Sven
