Subject: [Kicad-developers] About the new Pl_Editor tool.

I released the first draft of Pl_Editor, a new tool to create customized 
title blocks.
Some features are still missing (like hot keys and undo/redo commands) 
but it should be very usable.

The documentation is also released. Please read it.

I need volunteers to test it.
I need mainly GOST users to create a GOST title block (with an English 
version to test it).
I am thinking most of features needed by GOST title blocks are existing, 
but let me know if something is missing to create GOST title blocks.

I want (in the *very* next future) to remove all GOST conditional 
compilation in Kicad core code, because currently there are only 2 
specific GOST feature:
- The first (parts id notation) is now available as config option in 
Eeschema (with more than only GOST notation).
- The second is the GOST title block. The code relative to GOST title 
block is *very poor* and not maintainable, and not compatible with the 
title block editor, and the new customizable title block mechanism is by 
far more powerful.
I am thinking GOST title block is just a customized title block, like 
many other title blocks used in many companies, and therefore does not 
need a specific code inside Kicad.

Thanks for your help.
