fabrizio, I would like to create a new library set for kicad. What I'm doing
now is defining standard, guideline, etc (drawing style, naming scheme, etc)
for the library.
This works is due to, in fact, I (almost) never use current kicad library
which is, IMHO, lack of consistency, standard, not quite beautiful.
I use my own set of library (and I think many do). I think we should share
the library so we can improve library usability& variety.
I thought about improving the current library. But it can break any existed
design. Therefore starting a new library is better choice for me.
Simon, good idea. With user submitted libs, kicad library dev (could be
kicad-library-committer) can review if the library meet the defined standard
and merge to the main branch. One problem that came to my mind, where will
the submitted libs store?

I'll push it to launchpad

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.
I was thinking of adding an easy (i.e. integrated) way to kicad to
submit + download library components, possibly with a way to rate the
quality and add feedback. Nothing over-engineered tho.
User-submitted components wouldn't directly go into the "official" kicad
library, but could maybe easily pulled over, once quality standards are
What do people think?
