Re: Reorganization and QC of kicad library


I found this document useful in setting up my own libraries. http://dnu.no/arkiv1/The%20CAD%20Library%20of%20the%20Future.pdf

I've been using footprints generated from the IPC footprint calculator and have been happy with the results. I have a copy from a few years ago when it was free, before mentor graphics bought it.

I'm current working on a new set of standard & guideline for kicad's library. This work will be based on previous discussions and any publicly available standard. I'll push it to launchpad at lp:~kicad-lib-committers/+junk/library-experiment a long with examples as soon as it is ready.

I think with the new library, quality check should be taken more seriously to ensure compatibility and correctness. Please leave me any addition comment & suggestion so I can include it in the guideline.
