Description A. Wilcox (awilfox) 2015-06-24 06:25:53 UTC
Upstream has had Python 3 support for almost two years now.  The attached patch adds Python 3.3 and 3.4 to PYTHON_COMPAT for dev-libs/libevdev.  Tested on amd64 and ppc with no issues with both 3.4 and 3.3.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge dev-libs/libevdev

Actual Results:  
Python 2.7 was used to build the event-names.h file.

Expected Results:  
Python 3 should be used where available.
