Bug Description

DRC complains if features are too close to or overlapping "traces" on the outline layer. Please make it possible to exclude the outline layer from DRC.

Marking this medium priority as:

1. We can do something about it quite eaily.
2. Littering lots of DRC errors can hide real issues

Ideally, we would add a DRC check for various feature to edge distances, but our "outline" layer is only drawn as a center line by convention, not by an enforced rule.

A workaround for now is to add the pcb::skip-drc attribute to the outline layer.

Maybe the fix is to just do this by default on new boards?

That's what I've been doing.

Yes, that would make sense to me.
