If this FTBFS on kicad remains, I will remove it and upload again. I
will not let view3dscene be removed from testing because of this. (I
already have discussed this with Graham here at Debconf, we now have an
additional DD on the team (hoorray))

What would you say? I think I now test quite enough files, right. Maybe
we can find really different files, but I am quite unsure if that is
worth the effort and extra build time. We may set up additional
autopkgtest tests with them though.

I am not going to put them in a separate package. We could add them to
the current package though. (How big are they, I guess you left them out
of upstream source on purpose?)

Simply distributing files is not a big effort. I have no idea of the
field though so I can't easily judge how many people would appreciate it.
