So... I just tried Googling for a Dia sheet containing a DPDT relay

is so short and generic.

Is there any chance of changing the name to something that might be
useful in a search?

Hi Gene,

Perhaps you should start by explaining what you're trying to do. If
your expectation is schematic diagram drawings Dia (or Visio) are not
the best tools for that. Dia is a general purpose diagraming tool, as
in not specialized. If your expectation is ladder for example, then
DIA might fit the bill but there's also some open source IEC 61131
tools that may be more appropriate.

Asking on this list is agood place to start but as Steve mentions the
tone of your question is rather annoying so you won't get much
collaboration that way IMHO. Framing your question correctly will get
you a lot of support from Open Source projects:
