some pages on the wiki are empty. any reasons to keep them?
I think many wiki pages were created a long time ago to be placeholders for functions that were going to be implemented. Maybe check in the Sketcher sources if there are constraints of that type first. If there are none, that is, if those plans were scrapped, then maybe the pages could be deleted. But otherwise it's better to check if the pages can be filled with information. FreeCAD has a problem of missing documentation, so maybe those functions do exist and just need to be documented.

:point_up: and perhaps those functions are yet to be coded?

if i take the first page i gave, for ex, it was created in 2014.
none of the listed functions are present in the last load v0.19.

it's an open question to the developpers and the community if we need to maintain these pages.

Recreating them is trivial so I'd say no to keeping them.
Like my FreeCAD work? I'd appreciate any level of support via Patreon, Liberapay, or PayPal! Read more about what I do at my blog.

by random i gave a look to these pages and hopefully there is a mention "Currently not used by FreeCAD".
