And i have removed your change in drc.cpp (seen drc.ccp, I hace
translated comments in english ( in my english...))
Your problem is not due to a bug in drc.cpp ( perhaps you have 2 pads at
the same location, or other problem)
With you change one can connect 2 pads with a netcode set to 0.
But when a pad has the netcode 0, it must *NOT* be connected (no net
for this pad, or if you prefer, this is a not connected pin in schematic)
Correct, these are pins not connected, but that might be in the future,
and the pins are under a 289 pin BGA. In such a BGA, routing is
tricky. So I wanted to route the tracks out to verify that the routing
was feasible in the future and leave the tracks unconnected, not the pins.
So I am now thinking I can turn off DRC for this.....
The English comments in the drc.cpp and elsewhere will be helpful for
everyone in the future.
