+Using the component library cache
+---------------------------------
+
+Eeschema copies all components it uses to a file named <project>-cache.lib
+When operating on files, this library can be used as a convenient
+alternative to listing all the libraries that contributed content.
+
+However, when using eeshow with a revision history, the library cache
+should only be used if it is also kept in the repository. Otherwise,
+library changes in older revisions may get unnoticed.
