Re: [PATCH] Expose netclassptr constructor to python interface



I merged your patch into the master branch.  There were a few coding
policy[1] violations and commit message formatting[2] which I fixed.
Even though you modified a swig file, this was still C++ code which
should follow the coding policy.  There was trailing white space and
missing spaces between the function parenthesis and the arguments (line
61 of your patch).  Thank you for your contribution to KiCad.
