Would it make sense to extend the format with extra data fields, so this
can be tracked per-symbol?
The extra fields I'd add would be
Would be "KiCad" for "official" KiCad libraries, or users who have their
own standard could just use their own name.
Defined by whoever is in the "library-convention" field, and should be
sortable somehow, possibly by a version sort (split string into
characters and numbers, compare elementwise).
We have something similar in Debian, where each package has a
"Standards-Version" field, so we can do simple database queries for
packages that haven't been looked at in a while.
KiCad would not set these fields by default, so if someone publishes
some symbols somewhere, they would not be marked as having been checked.
