Re: KiCAD snap package


Hello Nick,

could you take a look now? I'm eager to have a recent release in the
store. I'm open to discussing all details (like the split out 3d
packages) if necessary.
We could/should also host the packaging under the KiCad github project
if you decide to publish an official package.

Best wishes
