I think you are going to port (to let them use the linkage facilities) also other tools and in particular the sketch tool.
This is probably what you meant when, in a post inside of developers corner, you wrote the following sentence:
"It happens that I am actually planning to work on sketch external geometry next, not specific to abdullah's PR, but should be inclusive."
Is it true ?
No, that's not what I meant. The linkage facilities is quite easy to use, but there are just so many places need to be changed.
The work 'external' in sketch external geometry does not mean it is from an object of another document. And I have no plan to change that, at least not now. What I meant by that sentence is about improving the sketch external geometry stability. Upstream sketch will silently delete all constraints against external geometry in case of any missing geometry reference due to model change. This is potentially a time-bomb, and it gets triggered often in my branch because of all the new functionality. And I have already fixed it. External geometry in sketch can now be frozen, detached, re-attached, and defining (i.e. for building shape). Any missing reference will be explicitly shown to user, who will have the choice of either manually re-attach, auto fix, or detach. It currently resides in my LinkDev branch, and will soon be merged to LinkStage3.
