TEXMAP in official parts - Travis Cobbs - 2012-10-29

I just noticed that the official parts restrictions document has a list restrictring what meta-command can be used in official parts:


Since !TEXMAP and !: aren't on that list, they aren't yet officially allowed. I realize that the parts tracker isn't yet ready to accept files with !TEXMAP. Should the restrictions document be updated before the tracker, or the other way around?

Re: TEXMAP in official parts - Chris Dee - 2012-10-29

Most of the Parts Tracker checking happens at Parts Update build time rather than Submit time, so I'd suggest updating the documentation first. There is more PT work that needs doing to support this beyond updating the code checking.

Then let's move ahead with updating the documentation.

I think it would be advisable to explicitly disallow things which have no extant implementations. I think that would be: cylindrical and spherical projections, and glossmap.
