what I'd like to see in KiCad regarding some automatic QA while creating
own symbols or footprints is a possibility to do an automatic checking
of symbols or footprints while I'm working on it depending on selected
rule set.

At least a possible checking directly within the editors in KiCad. It's
currently a bit uncomfortable and time consuming to check if a symbol is
fulfilling the KLC's rules (or any other rules).

Furthermore I'd appreciate if KiCad would pre ship such rule sets and I
could choose one. And also if I could copy such an existing rule set to
my own settings set and modify it afterwards.

Own rule sets should be addable from a own dedicated folder and also
selectable from and savable within a project.
