Hello there,

this email is cross-posted on
- fedora electronic lab mailing list - to inform the community about
herb, an alliance fork
- herb mailing list - to propose some patches, icons, desktop files
and little tweaks

I was introduced to herb yesterday at FOSDEM by one of its developers.
I support the initiative since alliance development has stalled for
more than a year. However I would appreciate TCL/Tk support instead of
GTK/QT for the reasons I've mentioned in:

Like I propose to Mukund, here are all my patches:

You will also find some icons and desktop files for the kde/gnome menu
structured by gEDA's developer PeterB/C "electronics-menu" (which is
default on fedora). I still need to find some time to push it to
freedesktop developers as their specifications does not give
electronics engineering applications its real value, but considers
those tools as "education".

With the following spec file, I create alliance rpms. The alliance
values are sourced automatically.

I'm planning in the near future, but before F-11 release, to create a
one/two page flyer for _all_ opensource EDA tools.

Kind regards,
