I’d like to contribute new symbols, footprints, and 3D models as I work on my projects.
I’m following the contributing directions laid out here: https://kicad.org/libraries/contribute/
Alas, I’ve run into a problem: I’m using KiCad 5.1.8, but all the symbols in the master branch of the gitlab repository have been converted to version 6.
According to this post, file formats have changed in version 6. So, it seems like I can’t follow the contributing directions while using version 5.1.8.
What’s the best way to proceed in contributing new library files while still using the stable 5.1.8 version?
Should I make my libraries while in version 5.X, and when version 6 gets into my distro’s repos, put in a merge request to the official gitlab repos?
