IMHO, Education repository is a better place, because it already has
such CAD programs as QCad, CADEMIA, HeeksCAD...

Education is about the worst place to put it, because there is so much
software that, in one way or another, can be useful in and for one's
education. In other words, "Education" is too coarse a label. And there
is far too much software that clearly /is not/ education-related in the
Education project.

you can get a librecad.desktop (and more info about fonts & patterns)

Part of the problem is also that there is no `make install` provided in

At the end of make process is executed "scripts/",
this shell script is responsible to realize the installation but in the
build tree. patching the line 4 RESOURCEDIR="`pwd`/unix/resources"
the install is realized in the build process

Shipping LibreCAD is not possible ATM due to conflicting licenses
between LibreCAD (GPL-2.0) and one of its dependencies, fparser (LGPL-
