2) Perform a search and replace of all of the application names so they all
have the same capitalization. For example kicad and Kicad should be changed to
KiCad. I think this is correct capitalization. However, JP is the final
authority on this.
KiCad is a good name.
Ki has no meaning now, Cad come from Computer aided design.
Well, I must say in France we like English words to name our products.
For other tools, we can use (for tools names, not for file names):
CvPcb (Something like Component versus PCB,
although this name come from French words Composants vers Pcb = Component to Pcb )
GerbView (of course Gerber Viewer)
Eeschema (Electronic engineering schematic)
Pcbnew ( Well, the first tool I used to design boards was called PCB.
When I started my own new PCB design tool, I called it PCB new, what else ? )
