The article does not follow the wiki guidelines. I suggest moving the article in the user space of the original editor because the article is still a draft. Otherwise, we need to replace the quotations with contextual information and explanations. The article does not explain why a user should be concerned about the libinput library and the references to Xorg and Wayland are not clear. --Feng (talk) 08:16, 7 January 2017 (UTC)

We can find the official documentation about "libinput" on freedesktop.org. --Feng (talk) 06:19, 8 January 2017 (UTC)
Hi Feng, this user is trying to do Gentoo a service by creating a document that shows how to get the libinput driver working on Gentoo. Yes, it's true you can find documentation upstream on every piece of software supported by Gentoo, but the magic of this article is the 'Gentoo' part of getting libinput working. Adding articles such as this one is a good thing and should be encouraged. With that being said, you are correct, we want to keep them formatted properly. I will update the article according to wiki Guidelines. When you see articles that need help with formatting, we can easily help with that. If this works for you please close this discussion. Kind regards, --Maffblaster (talk) 21:31, 10 January 2017 (UTC)
