Re: Gathering ideas of library and module improvement.
Thank you for cleaning up my wiki page. I'm quite new to wiki and will update it soon.
It seems that there has been a lot of on going in this matter. The first priority to me now is, how library/module directory are organized. Is there any conclusion on how the directories are organized? Will we still use the old style (Many components per file)? According to khiraly proposal, I thinkthe one component per file style has more advantages, especially for an open source project where the developers live in different places. By using directory structure, the components can be categorized in the tree-style manner. Below is my proposed structure:
|- category1 (transistor, opamp, etc.)
| |- manufacturer1
| | |- component1
| | |- component2
| |- standard component1
| |- etc.
|- category1 (pdip, soic, etc.)
| |- package1
| |- package3d1
| |- package2
| |- package3d2
