Re: Concerns about clearing disagreements before committing.


you only reinforce my point. I mostly choose opensource/freeware programs because i know they are better than commercial stuff because written by their users. I just want a system that i can keep using knowing that it will not suddenly become obsolete.

Hopefully you can at least keep them compatible if you must split
and make sure versions remain compatible. KiCAD is a nice program
although it needs work doing to it. Please don't ruin the only
option we do have in the hobbyist world for a serious PCB suit.
Not only hobbyist, please... we build more than ~1000 units with gerbers
generated by pcbnew (mostly 2 and 4 layer stuff) but we have no money
for 'big vendors'; and most low cost cads (to say some names: eagle and
ares) are piles of junk. Also not necessarily big vendors make good
products... if you look around the net EE (expedition express) is
nicknamed Endless Errors :D
