I tried using garchive to package a project and found that
gschem-archive (in the tar.gz archive) is always empty
I've tried the example invocation (console output included below) but
symbols never make it into the archive.
This is on geda 1.9 (compiled from source), figured i'd ask around
before diving into python.

For including symbols in project you can using library section patch and
utilities.
This patch make possible to create schematic files with library sections
which includes all used symbols.
By lib_sec_utils.py you may extracted symbols from schematic file, replace,
rename and etc.

Wow.. didn't realise the depth of the problem. Will need to read
through that discussion.

BTW: Figured out why garchive wasn't working - it wasn't reading the
per-user config from ~/.gEDA/gafrc
Once i added that it worked fine. I'll work on a patch over the
weekend. Its still not archiving the symbols from /usr/local/share/...
, I'll need to figure out why.

Is there a simple way of getting gschem to read the config files,
parse the schematic, and tell me where it would pull the symbols from?
Guess I could always do that in python, but with so many config files
(local gafrc and gschemrc, per user and system wide) it'd be great if
gschem could be persuaded to do it...

Thanks,
Abhijit

Symbols read by libgeda from always paths descripted in all rc-files.
Patch add this feature to libgeda, therefore it works in all projects,
which uses libgeda. Gshhem create file and add "----library section----" to
the end of it. All parts of GEDA project (exampls gsch2pcb) works with such
files too.

lib_sec_utils.py - python script worked with schematic file. It can save
symbols from -----library section---- of sch file to current dir or replace
symbol in ---------library section----- from current dir or other path or
can delete symbol from ---------library section-----or delete all symbols
and library section too for obtaining fully compatible sch-file with other
geda versions (without library section).

This script can be friends with gschem GUI by user schemma dialogs and
menus, but I did not know how.
