Bug Description

Feedback from John Bass:

It would also be useful, if DRC automatically produced a text file with the error type, layer number, and the X/Y location pair of the DRC span that produced the failure ... and for error free scans, removed any such file from previous runs.

Peter Clifton's comment:

Whether the implementation relies of a file or not, what is really being asked for here is the ability to deliberately ignore a DRC violation (or hide the results) between subsequent runs.

Arguably, this is a symptom that our DRC rules are not flexible enough in their definition - or that we should allow localised or class based customisation of the DRC rules.

On the other hand.. the designer may violate some rules at some point during a design, and may wish to ignore that for a while whist she focuses on other issues.
