Merging models/templates

Hi All,

I'm in creation of a bigger model. As it was stated Archi is not for that, so I'm trying to find out how can I keep the sub-models consistent and/or build bigger, more detailed model later by merging different models somehow. E.g. from different colleagues, or from different templates. The question is the same for templates. I have many templates for many different system types. I can use only one as a base of a new model, but I would like to present transformation of a bigger part of the landscape. I'm sure that I'm not the only one with the "monolithic or not" dilemma. What is your best practice for this?
Thank you.

This has been an issue for a while and that's why at the end we created the GRAFICO plugin. This plugin allows you to export a model in a source control (e.g. Git) friendly way. This is the basis for several workflows, like for example merging models.

Thank you, I've been keeping an eye on that from the very first moment :)

Kind Regards,
