Is there any willingness to discuss our release library structure and
content? I'd like to reach some consensus how to improve current situation
and I'm also eager to take 'project librarian' position on best effort
basis. I'm not willing to do 3D-models, but vetting submitted stuff and
doing some cosmetic modifications to current symbols. Naturally my own
stuff will get merged in too, as soon as it gets up to publication
What I think is needed mostly:
*Official symbol drawing guidelines with sizes and line widths.
*Discussion how to organise the library tree and possible sub-branches.
*Library and component naming policy
*Library licenses allowed.
The more flexible symbol system would include line width classes, that
would get sized on load time to user specification. There has been some
ideas before and they may be rehearsed here:
Some nice libraries I found recently:
IMHO the library is the last annoyance to new user of Kicad. The
functionality is mostly enough in current development versions.
