Modules position file: no mm support
I'm looking into generating a module position file for a board I'm
getting into production. I need a module position file in mm.
It seems that, no matters how the units are set in KiCAD, the module
position file always gets generated in Inches.
So, I went into the code to see what was happening there and, in
gen_modules_placefile.cpp I found the following line commented:
if(IF_DRILL_METRIC) conv_unit = 0.000254; /* unites = mm */
I didn't tried yet, but it really seems that by uncommenting that line
mm support would be possible.
So, the question is: Does anyone know why that line is commented?
Shouldn't we just uncomment it?
