There are no unit tests, The canonical testsuite for libev is part of the
EV perl module.

The documentation references several full applications and libraries
making use of libev, which is a lot of sample code, exercising all sorts
of configurations as well, in several languages, too.

You need better internet then - software.schmorp.de is connected
very well, and network slowness is likely a local problem at your
side. Mirroring on the other hand will not fix any slowness introduced by
the dynamic nature of the pages.

Nope. No doubt for fear of colliding with anti-terror and weapon trade
laws or so.

Thanks, I have updated the documentation :)
