  1. I just pulled a current copy of gEDA from
    http://www.geda.seul.org/download.html and it appears that the device
    models are no longer there.

    Why not?

    I can resurrect the models from my old version, but isn't this going to
    hurt new users who don't have their own archive built up?

    Ummmmm...... Device models?

    Do you mean SPICE models? GEDA has never, *ever* distributed SPICE
    models with the rest of the design suite. Doing so would probably
    violate more copyrights than a pile of music CDs in a Chinese flea
    market. The gEDA Project does not violate any vendor copyrights, both
    as a matter of principle and as a matter of obeying the law.

    Like many other electronics designers, certain gEDA users have posted
    SPICE models on their personal websites (separate and unaffiliated
    with gEDA) for other users to download and use, but the gEDA Project
    has *never* distributed SPICE models along with the rest of the
    electronic design software. It has always been up to individual users
    to find their own models and incorporate them into their copies of the
    gEDA suite.

    That's hilarious, I'm using that one.
     
  4. Since gEDA is GPLd, its possible that someone else put together a gEDA
    distribution which include models and that's what I've got. It matters
    not. The new version works with the old models.
