Therefore oce should move to occt7.x.
You have to face the sad truth that the OCE project is dead. The project's pillars have apparently moved on to other things. Their last update from May 2017 was based on OCC 6.9.1 which itself came out on 28 September 2015 (!!!), and based on work tanderson69 (blobfish) did more than a year before.
Thomas admits what I consider is the failing of OCE:

A delay of two years (and still counting) is simply unacceptable. FreeCAD has benefited from huge
gains in going from OCE 0.17.1/OCC 6.8.0 to OCC 7.1.0. Countless geometry bugs encountered by end users are now gone. Proper projections and HLR in TechDraw would be impossible with the current OCE.
Thinking that OCE can be brought to OCCT 7.1.0 in a timely manner is wishful thinking. OCCT will probably already be at 7.5.0 when/if that happens.
