I am sure many would like to "git pull" your project often without it
disappearing after each "delivery" :-)

For example, I have in gschemrc the following:

(load-from-path "auto-uref.scm")	       ; load the autonumbering script
(add-hook! add-component-hook auto-uref)       ; autonumber when adding a component
(add-hook! copy-component-hook auto-uref)      ; autonumber when copying a component

I find this feature useful when doing design changes.

Such scheme snippets though should be introduced as options.

I see in NEWS that we move towards using gaf config ... I wonder what
impact it would have.

Thanks, Enoch.

Devil's advocate corner: I wonder if help should be extended instead to
enhance gEDA Project Manager <> ...
