Re: gEDA-user: DIL too small
Yep and then get some one else to look at the data sheet and at the
pattern because if you are human you might have missed something and
that mmiss might be expensive.
Xtian, good to see you are still around... You are top on my list to
steal ideas from.

Well, the correct procedure is to allways, allways, look at the datasheet. Of
course, I do not follow that procedure.
A good point (but not the best) is to take care of it with some space between
the IC and other parts. So, a new component would have the biggest dimension
found in the market for that footprint. I prefer to make a new footprint,
because I dont like the style of the silkscreen of the ICs on the PCB
Some DIL14 chips are bigger at the ends that the outline in DIL macro in
PCB. It occured to me with plain DIL14 chips (gates & MSI). The shorter
edges are the source of the problem - the longer can't.
What is correct solution? To make a new element, to fix the old element
(DIL macro) or to say that the mistake was made by manufacturer of the
