Re: Winbuilder Nanometer support


My thought is to create an additional PPA called
kicad-daily-testing-with-scripting or something, which will be exactly
the same as kicad-daily-testing, only with the scripting stuff turned
on.  Anyone on the current kicad-daily-testing PPA will have to switch
PPAs to get the scripting-enabled packages, and I can include a
warning on the PPA web page saying that that scripting can be crashy
right now.

Honestly, I use my own PPA, and not having a scripting PPA is what's
holding me back from playing with the scripting stuff!  If this is
something you folks think is a good idea, I'll publicize it after I
take the few minutes to set it up and test a build.
