Re: OpenSCAD WB: Move in to FreeCAD-addons?

Although the OpenSCAD wb has no active maintainer I would still leave it in master.

If it is made into an external workbench then as the author of importCSG.py which started the whole thing off and being somebody who does the occasional fix when bugs are found I would like direct access to any repository that is created on Github for it.

Change Colour of a Part Icon or Text.

Is it possible to change the colour of the part icon or associated text in the Labels and Attributes window?
I would like to have some indicator that certain parts are different from others and to be able to change this under program control.

Re: Making stuff available for external python programming.
