Package: kicad-common
Version: 4.0.7+dfsg1-1
Severity: wishlist

The 3D models take up nearly three gigabytes of space, which is nearly a
fourth of my entire installed system size.  Many hobbyists do not need the
3D models and kicad is perfectly usable without them, so I suggest splitting
this large chunk of data into a separate package.
