    Is there currently support for modifying the files in a package and sharing it with teammates via source control? That is, if I change a file in a package, is that saved in the project anywhere, or would it just be in my local cache? This is not trying to make a new, custom package, it's just editing files that have been imported as part of a package.

    Hi @doday

    We are planning a feature that we are gonna call embedding a package. Through the UI, you will have an option to embed a package from the cache into your project. There you'll have the liberty to modify the package content to suit your needs. This package will be part of your project. So Collab or the VCS plugin will track these files and will be shareable with others.

    We are slowly adding the necessary foundations in the editor to support this feature. We hope to have a complete workflow available in the 2019.x release timeframe.

    Regards,

    Pascal
