Part of the problem is that we have no granularity in admin rights--being able to add wiki extensions requires full FTP access which is basically everything on all sites (forum, wiki, etc.) so delegating is risky, even just in terms of giving someone possibly unexperienced a way to mess things up. This is a consequence of our shared hosting setup but moving away from it just yet is not feasible, unfortunately. (Although I'd like to experimentally move the tracker to the Frankfurt Digital Ocean machine I'm paying for with my Patreon soonish.) I do indeed have a big backlog of sysadmin tasks, I'll try to knock a bunch of them out at once soon.
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.

Moderate kvetching is OK as it helps remind me of things which others feel are nagging issues to themselves. Just trying to explain some of the constraints.

Forgive the double-reply, but by the way, it also would be very appreciated if there are any outstanding issues or things people need me to address, if they can get converted to issues in MantisBT and assigned to me, I can keep track of them better, and it'll help us document changes we make.

Forgive the double-reply
and @Kunda1 as well

Congratulations, you are the first one to receive this pre-written reply that I will systematically and relentlessly post when I see needless and undesirable quoting. I am quite tired of it!!!

Please avoid quoting whole replies. It contributes nothing useful to a topic and only serves to make the topic needlessly longer. We do not need to see what someone wrote twice, along with the people they quoted. Since you replied immediately after the other person's reply, no quoting was necessary. Otherwise, please only quote the relevant part of a reply. Thank you.

Thanks for your patch. So is there a legit wiki page for Sketcher_CompConstrainRadDia ?

No, i didn't see it anywhere. I got the "legit" phrasing by the calling command-name "CmdSketcherCompConstrainRadDia". That way it is consistent.

I have your patched applied in a local git branch. But I don't know if I should submit it based on my previous question

I created the site. I don't know if you would call it legit. Its not reviewed and has a dead link since the site for the diameter is still missing. But the page it self is how it should be afaik.
