The code is still there. So, if you want to revive this proposal, you have to do the work, fix the conflicts and all that.

I am not sure what conflicts you refer to. The last relevant post was from triplus

Never compiled FeeCAD but that seems to be required to be able to allow user testing. Maybe a good exercise.

We are obviously talking about the unmerged pull request #1148.

If you look at it online, there are conflicts with the current code. This means the pull request cannot be merged as is right now. A developer that is interested in this needs to look at the code, fix the conflicts, and then it can be proposed again.

Obviously to test this you'd need to compile FreeCAD with the changes introduced by this pull request. But as it is now, it cannot be compiled, again, because of the "conflicts" in the code. You'd need to understand the C++ code, fix the conflicts, and then compile and test locally.

No need to waste your time on this. It's still planned to integrate the code but beforehand some refactoring is needed. As this is still of low priority for me I don't know when I take the time to do the work.

Great. You are talking about compile conflicts only, not functional conflicts. I think that is very helpful to know. At least compile conflicts could be solved by someone familiar with C++ but not FreeCAD. Refactoring probably not, though...



Also thanks at @wmayer for your feedback, which means that the functionality itself is considered good idea and its pure technical issues to be solved yet. This bit was missing in this thread so far, I think.

Dear all,
if you plan to include this pull request, and only if you plan to do so, I can update and solve all conflicts. I should not have problem for that, the change is very simple.
I have been maintaining the pull request up to date for many months what took me some effort, and I do not want to waste my time any longer for nothing.

The change is not much:
- The management of the archives that takes the few new parameters.
- The edition of these parameters.
- The management of the parameters to save and restore these parameters.

Let me know when you are willing to accept it and I update it.

Regards
Pascal Garcia

Is there a placeholder for a prefix as well, so that the backup directory can be specified?
