As Wayland is great technology I thought it would be a good idea to help out the gentoo devs to early-adopt Wayland technology. The problem with this is that I'm unexperienced in writing ebuilds.
So feel free to help, too! I just opened a ebuild request for xf86-input-libinput at https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=532566 but comparing it with the AUR PKGBUID ( https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/xf/xf86-input-libinput/PKGBUILD ) it seems to miss some things, like installing 99-libinput.conf to the xorg.conf.d directory. So if you read this and you think "meh, easy enough to add" feel free to share the result of your work. :)

BTW: I'm writing this with the help of libinput:
Code:
$ cat /etc/os-release | grep NAME
NAME=Gentoo
PRETTY_NAME="Gentoo/Linux"
$ cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log | grep -e evdev -e libinput

//EDIT: It installs the conf file now! If anyone sees any more improvements feel free to add them, else let's keep this thread to discuss where to help next. Ideas welcome. :)
