Re: [FEATURE REQUEST] Draft WB - line to sketch

Several options for those cases:
  1. Request the user to select a plane to attach the sketch to. Project the line onto the plane.
  2. Recover the previous functionality, requiring a third point to be selected. This way a plane is defined with all three points (two from the line).

Re: Need one logo for wiki a futur contributors hub

It's not my best creation (engineer not artist), but I made the logo absed on the other three hubs. The icon is 128 x 128 pixels.
