I'm an electronics newbie, and recently purchased empty PCBs for GoodFET and Ubertooth.
While trying to put together an order for all the parts in the bill of materials, I realized I'd very much like to have a computer parseable format I could dump into a parts search engine like octopart.
I started hacking up a simple website to do this using the octopart API but I can't find any sort of xml standard for a BoM.
Has anyone heard of such a thing? I'd be particularly interested in some sort of standard format that's available from gEDA, EagleCAD, etc
