Libraries - files and components naming policy


The most natural option would be:

file name -> company name
component name -> datasheet name (in my opinion small letters + numbers without spaces or '-' )

the only problem is that it would lead to very big files for some companies(Xilinx, Freescale etc.)

so maybe we should add name of family:

company-base.lib (eg. analog-base.lib, atmel-base.lib) -> for devices without family

company-family_name.lib (eg. analog-adc.lib, atmel-avr.lib) -> for devices whit family
