Re: Packaging note: new data file

Hi all,

As of 18037e2f, a new data file is generated during build that contains image resources for KiCad.

This file should be installed to ${KICAD_DATA}/resources/images.tar.gz (So, something like /usr/share/kicad/resources/images.tar.gz on Linux).

There is an install target for this in the cmake file now, so this *should* be done automatically, but I wanted to give a heads-up in case any of the nightly packages require manual modification when the build artifacts change.

I tried a Fedora nightly build and the file is created in the correct place, so no changes are needed there.
