Tevent is an event system based on the talloc memory management library. It has support for many event types, including timers, signals, and the classic file descriptor events. Tevent also provide helpers to deal with asynchronous code providing the tevent_req (Tevent Request) functions. (BZ#579844)
Libtevent provides the core event system used in Samba and also provides the event-driven main loop for projects such as SSSD and LDB. Anyone using these applications and developers needing to link programs against the Tevent library should install this package.
