libmtp is a library for communicating with MTP aware devices in POSIX
compliant operating systems.  It implements MTP Basic, the subset
proposed for standardization.
The Media Transfer Protocol (commonly referred to as MTP) is a devised
set of custom extensions to support the transfer of music files on
USB digital audio players and movie files on USB portable media players.
This package provides the udev rules file.
