Re: Exceptions improvement

:D Q2: Is such a change acceptable? Hi Abdullah! If it makes you happy, yes go for it! My motivation was to keep alive a free CAD tool, that allows people suffering broken infrastructure such as bombed hospitals to repair essential spare parts. Now I don't see why such a motivation should end in fri...

Re: Pull Request HowTo

Thank you for the nice feedback, yorik and kkremitzki. Here are some snippets to hint at the direction how static scans could identify the regressive code jitter. I read your suggestions. And I take them serious. My plan is to avoid déjàvues at manual PR reviews and of course to allow that "master_a...

Re: Exceptions improvement

I am not a fan of communicating to the end user through exceptions. That makes coding for fellow developers feel like flying through a meteroid field. The argument, it would reduce necesary branch coverage testing, is only valid to those who do not test the exception branches. A cheap trick to justi...

Re: Pull Request HowTo

When I screw things too much with git I sometimes do the following to start over: 1. Save your changes in a diff file with git diff mybranch..master > mychanges.patch 2. Delete your dirty branch, make a new clean one from a fresh, up-to-date master 3. Switch to that branch and apply your changes wi...

Re: docker reference builds for Python3 / QT5 /Ubuntu16.04

Hi, CADennis, and thanks for your tip, yorik: I applied the '-lmpi_cxx' flag to the CMAKE_CXX_COMPILER setting in CMake and FreeCAD built completely. And it even starts-up! Now I need to play with it a little bit. So, using vanilla-flavored Debian Stretch (as of today) and OCCT-7.1.0 libraries the ...
