Thank you for your answer.
Git is also a great tool behind those platforms. With a little push, i bet you can get yourself at the point that you can confident make actions from terminal/cmd.
I base that statement on the fact that being an experienced hw engineer is way more difficult to accomplish than mastering git.

In my opinion this is way more beneficial for the KiCad community.
I hope i’ve expressed my thoughts correctly.
