According to http://libusbx.org/ :

"*libusbx* _was_ a fork of *libusb* <http://libusb.info>, a library that
provides generic access to USB devices.
As of 2014.01.26, this project has been fully merged back into *libusb*
<http://libusb.info> and is being discontinued.
Since there will be no further releases of *libusbx*, you are strongly
encouraged to switch to using *libusb* <http://libusb.info>."

For the purpose of developing a packages using libusb*, I'd like to
know, if Alpine is going to migrate back to libusb replacing the
obsolete libusbx?

Regards, Tiger

Yes, I think we will have to switch back to libusb.

Thanks!
