Re: In response to KiCon panel question "atomic" vs "CvPcb" answer


I just said that we are not capable of providing atomic symbols because we have no idea what this means to each user but that doesn't mean that they will not be able to implement them on their own. There is no plan to change the current allowable work flows. Once the symbol and schematic code is swigged out to Python, that should make just about any work flow you can imagine possible.

The person in the forum misunderstood your intention, he thought you opposed the idea of atomic libraries. I interpreted you meaning that the KiCad's own libraries won't be atomic. There's no need to engage, we will send your positive message there, namely that all workflows will always be fully supported. Right?

    Feel free to engage this if you want to but please don't drag me into
    it.  Honestly, I really don't care how users define their symbols or
    what work flow users prefer.  KiCad places no restrictions on this
    regard nor do I plan to change that.  I don't understood what the big
    deal is.  Are they upset that we are not providing fully defined
    symbols?  That's not even a reasonable request since there is no way to
    meet everyone's individual needs but that doesn't mean that they cannot
    do this.  I really don't know what else can be said about this issue
    that hasn't been said over and over again.
