virichas anyone played with any Allwinner A10?07:40
viricany opinion on it?07:41
qi-bot[commit] Adam Wang: he-shrouded.fpd: SMD type header with shrouded case outline (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/kicad-libs/081a8b808:35
qi-bot[commit] Werner Almesberger: modules/meander-2.4GHz.fpd: 2.4 GHz PCB antenna (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/kicad-libs/c2feac508:47
wpwraknice. cvpcb only understands dots in .mod file names if an extension is given in .pro (it chops off at the last dot, so it doesn't even matter what the extension is)08:54
wpwrakon the other hand, pcbnew doesn't seem to like extensions in .pro at all.08:54
wpwrakoh the joy of mutually incompatible rules in a single integrated system :-(08:54
cladamw(dots ?) which dots ?09:02
wpwrakthe dot in meander-2.4GHz.fpd :)09:15
qi-bot[commit] Werner Almesberger: modules/meander-2.4GHz.fpd: KiCad hates dots - renamed to meander-2450MHz.fpd (master) http://qi-hw.com/p/kicad-libs/65c028109:27
cladamwmmm ... good to know09:28
