Just noticed this effort.


What is in the Bit Preserve repository?
Instead of relying on these bitmapped documents, I decided to re-create the entire Apple IIgs schematic in KiCad. Why KiCad? Long story short, I settled on KiCad because it is an open source tool and has an accessible file format. Those two qualities make it ideal for preserving a schematic long term. For fun, I started streaming my efforts on Twitch. What surprised me is that people started contacting me about other computer schematics. A friend and colleague emailed me a ten-megabyte zip file with Commodore 64 schematics he collected over time.

So. I created a GitHub repository called “Bit Preserve.” The goal is to re-create schematic for vintage electronics using KiCad.
Since there's recently been a lot of discussiona and efforts to recreate PCB's and to understand schematics around here I wondered if anyone had seen it or was interested.
