Proposal: Fast Track Parts Tracker Parts


Proposal: Fast Track Parts Tracker Parts
#1
A number of people have mentioned that minor edits should be fast tracked on the PT. I agree. Here's my proposal:

Code:
The Parts Tracker (PT) Admin may, at his discretion, fast track a part on the
Parts Tracker if it is considered by him to be a minor edit.  The term "fast track"
is defined to mean any system where a part is required to have less votes
than normal.  This may include unilateral approval by the PT Admin.  In all cases
the PT Admin must approve the part.  All fast tracked parts must appear on the
PT until the next regular update.

Examples of minor edits (note this list is not all inclusive):
- Any header modification including part renaming
- Creation of Moved To and Aliases
- Modification for greater decimal precision
- BFC certification
- Elimination of errors such as bowtie quads, colinear points, or T-Junctions

Thoughts?

Agreed, as these don't impact part geometry (and mostly I have been doing this already). I would want normal certification for moved files that adjust the origin/orientation. I'd need to be sure that BFC certification is "just that" - in many cases the opportunity is taken to "improve" the geometry, which should trigger full review.

I'm not ruling these out, but I'm so sure, as there is more scope to break things. A proven algorithmic process for bowtie quads or T-junctions could be acceptable.

I explicitly want to allow algorithmic processing. I think the library can benefit from it. Basically the only really immutable property of an existing, released part is origin. Any other changes won't typically break existing models.
