It's a fork of Android input code. Now it's pretty much intact (i.e. 
almost a verbatim copy of the original code) but the idea is that we 
will freely modify it to suite our needs (for better or worse). But once 
we start doing so we will also be taking in the burden of maintaining 
it. Which means covering it with tests etc. That's why I have been 
pushing some test-related patches for android-input code. Preparing the 
ground for upcoming modifications.
