Removed outdated BOM file
I only committed the BOM file by accident anyway, and it hasn't been updated to reflect changes to the board. Removed to avoid confusion.

This is the circuit board for the PD Buddy Sink, a device which aims to make USB Power Delivery accessible to any electronics hobbyist.
The board is designed for 1 oz copper on all layers. 1.6 mm thickness should be fine. Just keep in mind that it isn’t possible to assemble the board with a soldering iron anymore!
The PCB is made with KiCad, so you’ll need that if you want to make any changes. Several PCB fabricators accept KiCad PCB files directly now, but if you intend to order from one that does not, you’ll need KiCad to plot the Gerbers.
KiCad 4 supports loading footprint libraries from Git repositories, but its
support for doing the same with symbol libraries is lacking. To address this,
I added the variable
_KI_LIB_GIT. Set this path in the main KiCad window
(Preferences > Configure Paths) to point to a local copy of the
kicad-library repository to ensure that you’re using the latest schematic
