Help openmoko contributors get a suitable development platform

Reported by: chitlesh Owned by: chitlesh
Priority: major Milestone: Fedora 13
Component: FEL Version: devel
Keywords: kicad, openmoko Cc: tuju@…, wolfgang@…

Description

OpenMoko? hardware team uses the trunk version of Kicad with their in-house patches. These patches slowly find their way into the kicad trunk.

New openmoko contributors will need to compile everything from scratch before having a glimpse to the schematics and layouts, since their favourite distribution is not providing a compatible kicad version.

This is ticket against Fedora Electronic Lab team to strive to improve this issue on Fedora so that Fedora users can use opensource software to develop open hardware.

That said, this should not be limited to the openmoko's needs but also any other opensource hardware project which are using opensource EDA software.
