Just wondering if anyone has any scripts to generate the board outline and pins in eagle. I want to make a shield but want precise outline for the board and also the pins.

I've got an eagle part that has all the pins for the NG.  Standard pins have been tested, ICSP header and outline have not yet been verified.  I started the design before the Decimillia came out, so 3.3V and RESET are missing.

Can you just use, say, the Diecimila files (or LadyAda's protoshield) and delete the parts you don't need?  Or does a script offer other advantages?

I finally made a script based on the dimensions in ladyadas shield and also used her jumper pads. Its actually pretty easy to do and has made me realize how powerful eagle is. The shield schematic has the four jumpers for all the pins. You then connect your stuff to the pins, generate a board and then run the script which creates the correct board outline and positions for all the jumpers. Makes it very fast to generate a custom board. I can upload it to the community, however it isn't production proven yet. smiley

What are the advantages of a script over a standard library part?

I haven't gotten around to eagle scripting yet.
