I cannot find a source tarball for eet at that site. If it's part of
enlightenment's source itself, there is no need for an ITP, just create
another binary package from the source package.

Please enlighten us, it sounds like it is nothing more than read() and
write(). What exactly does this library do? Is it of use for other
application developers?

If I google I can find some documentation for eet. It seems like it is a
reimplementation of "ar". Maybe you can ask upstream why it was
necessary to reinvent this wheel?
