Cool, thanks.
I think we have settled on a set of web services now to go into next year
and the wiki will play a very central role.
So we have to spend more time to cleanup the homepage, categorize pages,
better indices, better translations, etc.
Feel free to edit anything! :-)

What a story! Yes, a lot of us have quite an odyssey behind us in terms of
free EDA tools. I started out managing teams (not working myself, I'm not an
EE) that worked with PADS Layout, later also an Eagle project, then KiCAD.
Also a bit of Altium Designer.

Have you heard about Fedora Electronic Lab?
It's more geared towards ASIC design not PCB/schematics, but still they are
trying to assemble free EDA tools in one place so I believe could be
interesting for you

I am open minded towards gEDA, it's GPL so that's good. There seems to be
active development there now, same as with KiCAD. Actually on KiCAD's
there is 'gEDA integration' somewhere I believe.
However, we are quite deep into KiCAD at this point so we rather try to fix
weaknesses than consider a switch.

Yes I've heard that before. Do you think we can improve this?

Wonderful! If you like, we should meet next time I'm in Shenzhen...
