* Package name : libtraceevent
Version : 1.1.0
Upstream Author : Steven Rostedt (VMware) <***@goodmis.org>

Programming Lang: C
Description : The libtraceevent library provides APIs to access kernel tracepoint events,
located in the tracefs file system under the events directory.
The kernel tracepoints are now being used by multiple packages like trace-cmd, perf, powertop, rasdaemon.
And all of them have duplicate codes in them to use the tracepoints. libtraceevent is planned to move all
the duplicate codes in a single library so that the duplicate code will be removed from the next versions
of these packages and they can depend on libtraceevent.
The code for libtracevent lives in the kernel tree at
git://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux.git in tools/lib/traceevent folder.
And so, it will be great if kernel team will like to package and maintain it, if not, then I will
be happy to do it. But, if I am doing it then I will need a sponsor to upload it.
