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 and the Device Information Files file (used by HAL).

This will be used by GVFS for editing files etc, it is actually very useful when treating the MTP device as a "real" filesystem. It only works on Android devices with Google's MTP stack. - Several fixes and memory leaks fixed by Lei Zhang courtesy if the Chromebook project, thanks Google! - Did you know that Microsoft silently dropped the MTPZ extension from Windows Phone 8?
