This is an unofficial repository for nightly builds of KiCad 6.0.

Contrary to the current Fedora upstream KiCad package it does ship the libraries (templates, schematic symbols, and footprints) as separate packages. This may cause incompatibilities with existing installations, so you should uninstall your current version of KiCad 6.0 before using this copr.

dnf remove kicad kicad-packages3d kicad-doc

All packages are rebuilt every Friday at 23:00 CE(S)T, unless no changes have been made to the respective source repository since the last build. The main KiCad package is also rebuilt on Monday and Wednesday 23:00 CE(S)T. This allows to do selective updates, e.g., if only the kicad-symbols repository has been updated within the last seven days, then only the kicad-symbols package is rebuilt and users get an update for that without the need to also download and install the application and other libraries.
