There are already a lot of undetected DRC violations, see my past posts :(
I love kicad, but some things are just treated as "No one of us cares,
so leave it as it is..." which is just a pity.
It is highly unlikely that no one cares.
When something does not get done in an open source project, I would not
assume it is because no one cares.
More likely: the cost is too high.
Meaning: good software is NEVER free. Somebody ALWAYS pays for it.
Any developer capable of writing software for a project like Kicad is
valuable. And time is money.
Alain, you cannot reduce the cost of writing free software, however you
can increase the reward by being a little more positive. Please do not
give up your day job for being a motivational speaker.
